'sfunny, I'll be heading through about 10:30 myself. We're not anticipating much traffic so probably about 30 mins. Presume you mean Saudi-Bahrain. The other way round will definitely take less at that time of night.

I will park up at the Passport control and take a cab over or hitch a lift with a fellow escapee

well I learned something. Causeway was packed at 11pm. Guess everyone's heading over for when the real action starts. Took about 90 mins from Khobar to the airport... and that was only with some drastic driving Saudi style to push into queues wherever we could at the border. (Actually, we were very impressed with even the customs officers how accommodating people were when you told them you were going to catch a flight.)

I got back to the border at 12:40am and it was pretty busy going back in to Saudi. I guess that's when the 'faithful' return so they can get some sleep before washing all their sin away at the mosque the next morning. Took about 40 mins to do everything which surprised me at that time of night.

Moral of the story: don't cut it fine if you're catching a late night flight.
