You can use Visa Checker of iVisa that can help you to find out whether you qualify for a Bahrain evisa or not. Just access the tool, insert Finns as your citizenship and select Bahrain as your destination. The information you need will be shown in just a second. It is as simple as that.
What documents are required?
Applying for a Finns evisa for Bahrain is simpler than you think. However, you need a few things to get you started. The list of things you need is short, and everything is accessible. Here is what you need to provide:
Passport – it is easy getting a passport, and you may already have one. However, one of the conditions is that your passport is valid and maintains its validity for at least another six months from your date of departure to Bahrain. If it loses its validity, you will require a new one.
E-mail address – while the visa will be liked to your passport electronically, you still need a hardcopy that will be requested at the immigration office. iVisa will send you a copy of the document via e-mail in PDF format that you need to print. The document will be sent via e-mail, so make sure that you provide a valid e-mail address.
Means of subsistence – the immigration officers need to make sure that Finns are not in Bahrain searching for illegal work. Providing proof that you can support yourself while in Bahrain constitutes such evidence.
Return flight ticket – the Bahrain evisa will let you stay in Bahrain for maximum 14 days. Irish and British citizens can stay up to 90 days. To make sure that you follow the rule, you need a proof of return, and a two-way ticket provide precisely that.
Means of payment – while completing the application process, you are required to make the payment for the visa and the services provided by iVisa. You can use a credit or a debit card, and if you have a Paypal account, iVisa accepts that as well.
Bahrain evisa for Finns– the application form
The form designed by iVisa is straightforward. There are three simple steps that you need to go through. If you find yourself in need of help, you can call iVisa’s support service. Someone is reachable 24/7.
Step one will require you to fill in your basic information. It is easy and should take you about five minutes. At this point, you are also required to select a processing time. Be aware that your choice will affect the cost of your Bahrain evisa. There are three available choices, and they are as follows:
Standard processing – this is the most popular, probably because it is the cheapest option. It costs $114, and your visa will arrive within 10 business days.
Rush processing – it is a faster option for $114. Your application will be processed within five business days.
Super Rush processing time – iVisa provides an urgency option as well. This time, your application will be processed within just three business days. As you can probably guess, the cost is higher too. You will be charged $179.
The second step of the application process consists of a quick revision and payment. Make sure that every piece of information you provide is accurate. Once the application is processed, it is permanent, and the cost is non-refundable.
Last but not least, the third step requires answering personal questionnaire and document upload. The additional documents depend on your particular case, so it is not the same for everyone. You will be notified of everything you need to upload.
As you can clearly see, the process does not present any challenges. The visa for Finns you receive is valid for 30 days from the date of issue and will allow you to stay in Bahrain for maximum 14 days (unless you are Irish or British, in which case you can stay up to 90 days.) It does not cost a lot and it is more convenient than going to the embassy.
