One of the region’s most significant commercial crossroads, Bahrain is a liberal and modern country attracting international tourists and business travellers alike. An archipelago of 33 islands with a central geographic location to the Gulf states of Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the UAE, the Kingdom is connected by a causeway to Saudi Arabia – Saudi Aramco’s headquarters and the region’s largest single market.
There are essentially two seasons: hot summers between May and October and mild winters from December to February. March and November are transitional months. Visitors to MEOS GEO can expect warm weather, but without excesses.
Visas are required by all visitors to Bahrain except passport holders of the GCC States. The infrastructure and public facilities throughout Bahrain are undergoing rapid improvements. In January 2021, the new Bahrain International Airport was opened and recently received a 5-star rating from Skytrax, the world’s top airport and airline rating body.
The island also offers a rich variety of recreational opportunities – from shopping to world-class restaurants, sporting facilities, entertainment, history, and culture.
