Bahrain International Airport arrivals will be limited to only citizens, residents and those with a prior permission granted letter.
The new policy, which is part of precautionary measures to stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), includes transit passengers.

Passengers who travelled from China, Iran, South Korea, Iraq, Hong Kong, Lebanon, Egypt, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, the European Union, the UK and the US must declare this to the airline.

They will also have to comply with medical tests upon arrival at BIA if Bahrain is their final destination. The policy came into force on Wednesday (March 25).

In a statement on its website, Gulf Air said, “Gulf Air continuously coordinates with the relevant authorities in the Kingdom of Bahrain and with airport authorities throughout its network to take all precautionary and preventive measures in order to ensure the safety and security of the citizens and residents of the Kingdom of Bahrain, along with its passengers and crew.”
