What are the Changes?  

The government of Bahrain will begin to issue digital residence permits to eligible individuals. Previously, holders of a Bahraini residence permit were required to obtain a residence permit sticker that was stamped into their passport. The government stated that this change would help to simplify immigration requirements in the country.
