Operating hours / Visa application
Good evening

Could you please let me know your opening hours at the Consulate and do I have to book an appointment. I have been trying to contact you for many days now and still no response.
My Egyptian fiance needs a visa to South Africa urgently and applications have to be done through the Consulate.

Please confirm your operating hours for an appointment and what would be the visa requirements for an Egyptian to South Africa.

Thank you

Hi good day. I am travel agent and would like to inquire regarding the procedure of how we can apply tourist visa for our Bahraini/ Non Bahraini applicants.
I would like to know where can we get the application form or site where we can download the form. And also where can we submit the documents. Does the applicant can submit the documents everything online(by scanned submission) or do they need to book appointment at the nearest embassy or consulate on Bahrain.
It will be very helpful if we can get a quick response from your office. Please send me the details in our email at or Thank you very much
