Passport – it is easy to obtain a passport, and you may already have one.

The delivery is made via e-mail, so make sure that you provide a valid e-mail address.
Source of income – immigration officers need to make sure that Antiguan Barbudan are not in Bahrain to work illegally. Providing evidence that you can support yourself while in Bahrain will be sufficient.
