Following the outbreak of a new Covid-19 variant, Omicron, the PCR test report now holds much more importance as it has been made mandatory for fully vaccinated air passengers and the passengers who have recently recovered from COVID infection must present, before boarding their flight to Bahrain, to present a certificate with a negative result for a PCR test administered within 72 hours of their departure.
The fully vaccinated as well as the unvaccinated arrivals in Bahrain are also required to undergo an on-arrival PCR test after they arrive in the Kingdom.
If you’re wondering where you can get you or your family members tested for COVID-19, we have put together an extensive list of RT-PCR testing centres in Bahrain where you can get tested at your convenience while following the safety protocols declared by the state.
