Bahrain’s civil aviation affairs ministry yesterday said that entry will be banned from 16 new countries, including Tunisia, Iran, Iraq, Mexico, Philippines, south Africa and Indonesia over coronavirus concerns, the state news agency (BNA) reported.
Bahrain had suspended entry of travellers from countries on its ‘Red List’ in May, a list that included India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal.
Bahrain has excluded citizens and residents with valid residency visas from the ban.
Bahrain has recorded 267,324 cases and 1,378 deaths. Active cases stand at 1,115 after 264,831 recoveries.
