Bahrainis with special passports to get easy UK visa
Manama, March 31, 2014
Bahrainis holding diplomatic or special passports could soon get easy access to the UK.
The Cabinet has granted initial approval to a deal with Britain that will speed up visa procedures, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
The accord grants Bahrainis with such passports a free, six-month visa to the UK and Northern Ireland.
It also allows UK diplomatic passport holders, diplomatic pouch bearers and special envoys to embark on visa-free travel to Bahrain for a maximum of six months.
Meanwhile, the Cabinet initially approved registering the Arab Authority for Investment and Development of Real Estate and establishing its headquarters in Bahrain.
Both matters have been referred to the ministerial committees concerned for review. - TradeArabia News Service
