Business Set up In Bahrain


As a place to do business, Bahrain continues to be relevant and attractive to investors from around the world. Bahrain maintains its position in the GCC due to its liberal business environment. Easy access to the rest of the Middle East and supportive visa policies. In comparison to other GCC member states, Bahrain maintains the lowest basic costs, such as rent for offices and industrial land. The cost of setting up a company in Bahrain is relatively lower than any other GCC member states. The time- frame required for incorporating a company or establishing a branch is very fast but varies depending on the type of entity to be set up. Bahrain maintains a diverse and multicultural population, with approximately 50% expatriates. It also has supportive visa policies, considered as one of the most flexible in the region.
