You need a visa to visit Bahrain.  Details of visa application can be found at

There are several ways to obtain visa:

  • Online. Many country citizens can apply for eVisa via Internet.  It is valid for 30 days, starting from the time of approval (NOT from the time of entry).
  • Through hotel. While some visas are available on arrival in Bahrain, but otherwise they need to be pre-arranged, either through a sponsor (such as a hotel, a Bahrain company, or a travel agent), or an embassy.  The Hotel requires a minimum of ten (10) working days, credit card guarantee to process a visa.  If you are not to stay at Sheraton Bahrain, please make sure your hotel can sponsor your visa as some of them may not offer the service.

If you need an invitation letter from the meeting, please contact the Executive Director of ARMA, Peter Smeallie.  He may be contacted by email:
