Default Visa Run this weekend

I am flying out of Abu Dhabi to Bahrain and back tomorrow to get my visit visa renewed. whats the process at the Bahrain end is it off the plane through immigration then back to the check in desk and check-in on the return flight?

why not check in online for both boarding passes... you may not even have to clear immigration (which will cost you the grand sum of 3 Bahraini dinars IIRC)... just go to the transfer desk.

In fact even if you don't have the return boarding pass you could probably go to the transfer desk at BAH to get one!

you know, visa rules changes, labour laws changing and this is just before a major influx of new people........ good time to be changing the rules, as we know how it works here when that happens, very slowly.
