The travel of Indians, however, will be subject to the presentation of a negative RT-PCR test certificate with a QR code before boarding the plane, administered within 72 hours of departure; undergo three RTPCR tests, on arrival, the fifth day and the 10th day after arrival.
Besides Indian residents of Bahrain, Indian nationals with valid visas are now also eligible to enter Bahrain.
