Visas im­posed on Qataris

Gulf News - - Front Page -

Bahrain is im­pos­ing visas on Qatari na­tion­als plan­ning to visit the king­dom fol­low­ing years of al­low­ing ci­ti­zens from the penin­su­lar coun­try to en­ter Bahrain by show­ing their iden­tity cards.

The de­ci­sion was at­trib­uted to the need to take mea­sures to en­sure that Bahrain’s open­ness on tourism and vis­its is not abused to tar­get its se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity.

King Ha­mad Bin Eisa Al Khal­ifa or­dered the im­po­si­tion of visas as part of strength­en­ing the process to en­ter and live in Bahrain in light of the pre­vail­ing se­cu­rity chal­lenges and to pro­tect the king­dom’s se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity.
