On Arrival Visa On Causeway Stopped For Saudi Sales Profession


I have multiple re entry visa in saudi arabia. From february daily i visit bahrain via king fahad causeway and get on arrival visa at bahrain passport for SR:50. My proffession is sales and nationality indian. Yesterday i try to go bahrain via causeway from saudi, at bahrain passport they tell you cannot get on arrival visa from today. Try to apply online e visa at evisa.gov.bh
. I checked that site visa terms and conditions mentoned e visa only valid for arrival at airport bahrain. Any one help me.

Very strange.  I know driver professions who also do this daily.  Will try and find out if anything changed.

Well the on arrival visa via causeway is still being given.  I have spoken to a few friends who travel daily.  They haven't faced any issues and their professions are similar to yours.  Keep in mind that as far as professions are concerned in Saudi; even expat general managers & directors have titles of sales persons or marketing supervisors on their Iqamas.

Are you sure that it wasn't due to any other reason that you were denied visa on arrival?  see the conditions for the on-arrival visa below.

For whatever case, you are in a situation as the evisa is not valid for the causeway.   Unless it's a multiple entry visa in which case you enter the first time through the airport and subsequent entries you can do over the causeway.
