Validity of Residence Permits under Personal Sponsorship Extended

Dubai, UAE, July 17, 2018:  The Ministry of Interior has issued a decision extending the validity of residence permits under personal sponsorship in Bahrain for up to five or ten years.   

The Ministry of Interior has issued a decision extending the validity of residence permits under personal sponsorship in Bahrain for up to five or ten years. Previously, such a visa was issued with a maximum validity of two years. 

The government fee for the two-year residence permit under the personal sponsorship program remains the same (BHD 200); the five-year permit costs BHD 400; and the ten-year permit is BHD 600.

  • If a foreign national owns real estate in Bahrain with a minimum value of BHD 50,000; or
  • If a foreign national invests in a business in one of the approved sectors in Bahrain, with a minimum share of BHD 100,000.
