The service allows visitors to correct their residency situation in the country and facilitate their departure in case of the availability of flights to their countries due to the extraordinary global situation resulting from the coronavirus.

The NPRA has provided facilities to visitors and residents in Bahrain since the beginning of the pandemic through extending the validity of residency permits and visas for foreigners in Bahrain without paying the administration fees for a humanitarian reason as part of the national efforts against the spread of coronavirus.
