Posted 6 December 2017 · Add Comment

Gulf Air has in partnership with VFS Global, the world's largest visa service provider, launched a Bahrain Tourist Visa Service available via visa.gulfair.com exclusively for the airline's passengers flying across its global network to Bahrain.

Travellers with return Gulf Air tickets can now conveniently apply for a visa to the Kingdom of Bahrain online via visa.gulfair.com or by visiting their local Gulf Air sales office with the necessary documents no more than 30 days prior to travel to fill in the relevant forms and submit their application. The visa service takes a minimum of four working days to process and is done in coordination with the relevant ministries and government entities.

Gulf Air Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Captain Waleed Abdul Hameed Al Alawi, said: “Promoting the Kingdom of Bahrain as a many faceted tourist destination is key to Gulf Air’s longstanding mission. We are delighted to, in partnership with VFS Global, launch the Bahrain Tourist Visa Service - making the process of obtaining a visa to enter Bahrain easier and more convenient. We anticipate positive feedback from our customers, for whom this service is tailored, and we look forward to welcoming more people from around the world to Bahrain to experience all that the Kingdom has to offer.”

Vinay Malhotra, COO – Middle East & South Asia, VFS Global, added: “We are delighted to partner with Gulf Air and the Government of Bahrain to develop a convenient, next-generation visa service for Gulf Air passengers visiting Bahrain. The dedicated online platform not only makes applying for a visa to Bahrain quicker and more convenient than ever before, but also provides passengers with 24x7 accessibility and online tracking of their visas, amongst other advantages.”
