Precautionary Measures at Bahrain International Airport

Bahrain Airport Company, the operator and managing body of Bahrain International Airport (BIA), is committed to ensuring that our airport remains operational, clean, and safe for those who need to travel. We have implemented a wide range of extra measures that comply with the Bahrain Government’s guidelines and are designed to keep you as safe as possible while traveling through BIA. 

Entry Procedures

Citizens planning to travel abroad must comply with entry procedures and requirements at their destinations. They must also sign a declaration form prior to departure, agreeing to bear any medical costs while abroad as well as mandatory COVID-19 testing once they arrive in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

In line with health and safety measures, access to the terminal is restricted to passengers and staff, although exceptions will be made for those accompanying passengers with reduced mobility or unaccompanied minors. Temperature screening is mandatory at entry points to the terminal and before boarding, and anyone with a high fever will be subject to a secondary medical assessment. To allow time for additional screening procedures, passengers must arrive at the airport at least three hours before their flight departure time.

Entry Procedures

Social distancing measures

Passengers must adhere to social distancing measures at the terminal. Footprint stickers are in place to remind people to keep their distance. Wearing face masks is mandatory for all passengers and staff at the airport.

Social distancing measures

General cleaning

In addition to general cleaning, all frequently touched surfaces are sanitized, and plastic security trays are sanitized at the entry and exit of the security locations. A disinfection team is also on standby 24/7 to respond to any incidents. Passenger and staff shuttle buses are regularly disinfected and are running at 50 per cent occupancy to maintain social distancing.

Robots that use ultraviolet technology have been deployed to disinfect the airport and handrail disinfection systems have been installed at travellators and escalators.
