Guidelines issued for entering Bahrain through causeway
Travellers entering Bahrain via King Fahd Causeway have to undergo coronavirus (COVID-19) tests and pay BD60 each. They are also required to download and register on the BeAware app, in compliance with the mandatory precautionary measures for combatting the pandemic. These measures do not apply to incoming travellers who show evidence, via the BeAware app, that they have tested negative after undergoing a PCR test before leaving for Bahrain.
PCR results are valid for 72 hours after undergoing the test. Incoming travellers are urged to comply with mandatory precautionary measures and must adhere to all health protocols enforced by authorities. They are required to self-isolate until their test result comes out negative. In case the test is positive, they will be contacted by health authorities, must observe quarantine protocols, and abide by the instructions given to them.
Bahrain’s authorities have made it mandatory to adhere to social distancing, wearing face masks, and avoiding gatherings. Those who show suspected COVID-19 symptoms (headache, coughing, loss of sense of smell or taste, and separate pains in the body with high temperatures) are required to isolate immediately, call 444 and follow the instructions given.
