Bringing Children & Pets

Children are typically no harder to bring into the country than adults and will require:

  • A visa (which can be applied for via the employer)
  • A passport
  • The child’s birth certificate
  • Copies of the parent’s CPRs
  • Acopy of the child’s CPR
To bring a pet to Bahrain the following criteria must be met:
  • All shipping agencies and airlines involved will require a valid certificate from a vet in the country of origin of the pet.
  • Dogs must have a certificate of vaccination against rabies, parvo, hepatitis, leptospira and canine distemper administered no less than one month but no more than six months before the pet’s arrival in Bahrain.
  • A vaccination booklet with all recorded vaccinations must be submitted.
  • A health certificate must be submitted.
  • Pets must be kept in a secure and comfortable cage clearly labelled with the owner’s name and address.
  • A request form for the Veterinary Quarantine Division in Bahrain must be filled out.
It should be noted that if a pet is brought in without the above, it may be exterminated or sent back to the country of departure. Even pets with all vaccinations and documents may be quarantined for up to 30 days.
