Tourist Visa to Bahrain

Hello All,

I'm from Albanian and thinking of applying for jobs in Bahrain, but I want to see it first as a tourist in order to have an idea of how it works.

We don't have a Bahrain Embassy in Albania and we are not on any country list for visas. I found out that they are sponsors like Hotels that do the procedure of the visa but I have to take a signed letter from a local Bahrain Company, which I don't have. I just know one person in Bahrain but he does not own a company.

Does anybody know what to do in that case. Does anybody know companies that give that kind of service, a tourist visa? And also do you know companies that hire Albanians?

This bit is irrelevant.  Companies can hire expats from any nationality if they are qualified and there is a need.

For tourist visa, google for document clearing agencies.  Call them and ask if they can do a sponsored visa.  Other options would be gulf air, if you book a ticket with them and hotels (4-5 star ones), if you stay with them.

Hi Adalm

Are you trying to come to Bahrain on a visiting visa first and then later on change to employment visa? or only visiting first?

hello,

Yes, first I want to visit Bahrain and then make a decision if I can and work there.
In the meantime I'm searching what kind of jobs do they post, the companies etc , but most of them want candidates that already live in Bahrain.
Does anybody know websites that post jobs for foreigners and undertake the work visa procedures?

Thank you
