Bahrain bans entry from 16 new countries
On Tuesday Bahrain has banned entry from 16 new countries including Tunisia, Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Philippines, South Africa, and Indonesia over coronavirus concerns.
The list also includes Mozambique, Myanmar, Zimbabwe, Mongolia, Namibia, Panama, Malaysia, Uganda, and the Dominican Republic, the country’s civil aviation affairs said.
Bahrain had already suspended entry for travelers from countries on its “Red List” on all flights in May, a list that included India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Vietnam.
The authority said that the entry of travelers from the red list countries will also include those transiting through the kingdom, but has excluded citizens and residents with valid residency visas from the ban.
