Bahrain adds 16 countries to travel ‘red list’ including the Philippines, Indonesia

Only citizens and residents of Bahrain are permitted to enter from the red list countries

Bahrain has added 16 countries to its red list for travel, taking the total number of destinations on the list to 22.

Passengers arriving from the red list countries, including those who have transited through them at any point in the preceding 14 days, are prohibited from entry into Bahrain unless they are citizens or residents of Bahrain.

Those eligible for entry must present a negative PCR certificate, with a QR code, administered within 48 hours of their departure.

They will also need to undergo further testing upon arrival and on their 10th day of mandatory quarantine.

Payment for testing may be made on arrival or through the ‘BeAware Bahrain’ application, the Bahrain News Agency reported.

Designated quarantine centres licensed by the National Health Regulatory Authority (NHRA) are available. Passengers with an address in Bahrain, registered in their name or the name of an immediate family member, may complete their 10-day mandatory quarantine at that residence. Those aged six and below are exempt from these requirements.

All other travel procedures for arrivals from non-red list countries remain in place, the report said.
