Visits to Bahrain by single women restricted

A story released today by Reuters reports that Bahrain would restrict visits by single women to the conservative Gulf Arab state.

An Information Ministry official reported that single women wishing to visit Bahrain must obtain visas from Bahrain's embassies abroad or through companies employing them rather than waiting to receive visas at the airport, as most foreigners do.

"Women travelling alone will not be given visas upon arrival at the airport," the official told Reuters.

The move applies only to women, the official said, adding that families, couples and men would be granted visas on arrival. It was not immediately clear whether the restriction applied only to unmarried women, or to all women travelling alone, regardless of their marital status.
