Visa Information for Certain Mideast Countries

Bahrain Commercial travelers going to Bahrain are generally able to obtain a
72 hour transit vist at the Immigration Desk at the Airport upon arrival.
If a long-term visa is required, the commercial traveler must submit an NOC
(No Objection Certificate) from the Bahraini Foreign Ministry to the Bahraini
Embassy in Washington before a visa can be issued. To obtain the NOC, the
U.S. Embassy must prepare and submit a diplomatic note and be prepared to
pursue in event of any questions. At least 10 working days are required to
obtain the NOC. Because of the burden this process places on the U.S. Embassy
staff, commercial visitors are urged to obtain the 72-hour transit visas at
the airport.

Dubai The Dubai Sheraton Hotel will obtain airport visas for travelers who
stay at the hotel during their sojourn in Dubai. It takes five days for the
hotel's visa applications to be processed.

Peoples Republic of China. The Technical Office recently received a copy of
PRC's newly published regulations on inspection of Import/Export Commodities.

import and export commodities, protecting the legal rights and interests of
the parties involved in foreign trade, and upholding the state's prestige so
as to promote the development of production and foreign trade, and serve
China's economic construction.
