Bahrain, China implement mutual visa exemption for diplomats, special passports


Bahrain and China have signed a mutual visa exemption policy for diplomatic and special passport holders, and the deal has taken effect as of 25th October 2018.
The deal permits diplomats and special passport holders to stay for a 90-day duration from their date of entry, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs revealed.

Such a move reflects the desire by both the countries to consolidate their ties at various levels and shows their efforts towards development of political, economic and trade co-operation.

Currently, Bahrain is working on drawing more investments from China. The Economic Development Board of Bahrain has revealed that there is a growing interest towards Bahrain from the tech sector in China, pointed out the Managing Director of Bahrain Economic Development Board, Simon Galpin.

Speaking during the World Economic Forum, he said that the Chinese e-commerce companies recognize that both GCC and Middle East are really good markets. Bahrain is considered good as it is a great transportation hub, a great place for fulfilment centres, and hence, companies that are going to do deliveries into Saudi Arabia can position themselves in Bahrain and make deliveries across the causeway, he pointed out.
