Bahrain Prepared to Offer Visa Waiver to Estonian Citizens

03.07.2013

Nr 228-E

During his meeting with Foreign Minister Urmas Paet in Bahrain, Foreign Minister of Bahrain Khalid Bin Ahmed Bin Mohamed Al Khalifa said that Bahrain will add Estonia to the list of countries whose citizens can get a visa at the border. According to Foreign Minister Paet, this decision will hopefully come into effect within the next few months.

During their meeting, Paet also said that Estonia would like to create a strong base of treaties with Bahrain and develop contacts in the political, economic, and cultural sectors. “Hopefully the agreement for the prevention of double taxation signed between Estonia and Bahrain at the end of 2012 will help with the creation of more business contacts,” said Paet, adding that Estonia is also interested in continuing negotiations with Bahrain for the conclusion of an agreement for the protection of investments.

The foreign ministers of Estonia and Bahrain also agreed that foreign policy consultations would be held.
