PROCESSING THE RENEWAL
There is no definite process advised by the embassy website. Therefore, it is wiser to coordinate with them for any further instruction.
- Always prepare all your documents before you come to the embassy to avoid any inconvenience.
- Be at the embassy early as it is expected that there are other kabayans who will process theirs as well.
- As usual, the process begins to queuing up to windows for data verification, encoding, photo taking & payment. Double check all the information you have provided for the data encoding & verification to avoid any hassle during the process and extra charges for the correction.
- Passport may be ready after 1-2 months. You can check the PE Bahrain for the list of the ready passport so you can save time instead of going to the embassy immediately. You can click this link for the list of the ready to pick up passports.
