Embassies and consulates

The Kingdom enjoys excellent relations with the international community and has approximately 30 embassies and 115 diplomatic missions around the world. Through these networks, Bahraini citizens have access to all necessary support during the times they need it the most.

Embassies can also help to provide emergency travel documents and validate documents for use in the country you’re visiting.

Registering births, deaths, and marriages abroad will all require you to talk to your embassy. However, the level of assistance they offer may differ by country: in some areas of conflict, they can only offer very limited assistance.
