Applying for a Russians evisa for Bahrain is simpler than you think. Although you need a few things to get you started, the list of things you need is short. Here is what you need to provide:
Passport – it is simple obtaining a passport, and you may already have one. Make sure that your passport is valid and maintains its validity for at least another six months from your date of departure to Bahrain. You will require a new one if it loses its validity.
E-mail address – while the visa will be linked 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 Russians are not in Bahrain searching for illegal work. Providing a means to 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 will provide precisely that.
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 assistance, you can call iVisa’s support service. Someone is reachable 24/7.

Standard processing – this is the most popular because it is the cheapest option. It costs $114, and your visa will arrive within 10 business days.

The second step of the application process consists of a quick revision and payment. Make sure that every piece of information you give is accurate. Once the application is processed, it is permanent and the fee is non-refundable.
