Processing of visa applications
Due to the development of the pandemic in Bahrain, visa applications can currently only be accepted for fully vaccinated people or in urgent exceptional cases. As soon as this situation changes, an announcement will be made on the website of the Embassy in Manama.
In cases of fully vaccinated people or where exceptions apply which allow entry to Germany, travelers can apply at VFS Bahrain again.
You can find a list of these exceptions below.
If you are not fully vaccinated, Visas can currently only be issued if the intended entry is absolutely necessary. The circumstances under which entry is considered to be absolutely necessary are explained in German, English and French on the website of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community under the heading Coronavirus – FAQs and answers, and then under “Travel restrictions/border control”.
