The mission of NSA Bahrain is to provide Operational Support to U.S. and Coalition Forces operating throughout the CENTCOM area of responsibility. Naval Support Activity Bahrain operates and sustains superior facilities and services for its tenant commands, their deployed assets and military members, DOD civilian personnel and dependents living in Bahrain. Provides security to ships, aircraft, detachments, and remote sites throughout the region.
All active duty military personnel are required to have an official passport prior to arrival in Bahrain. Official (No-Fee) passports will be issued through NSA Bahrain Immigration office. Do not delay, it is critical that you have an official passport plan early. Passport application can take as long as two months.

Civilian Attire/Dress CodeU.S. personnel and their families must be aware of local sensitivities and cultural values in order to minimize the impact of U.S. military presence and reduce, to the maximum extent possible, any potential host-nation friction. Unless otherwise directed in writing by higher authority, all U.S. Navy personnel attached to COMUSNAVCENT/COMFIFTHFLT units and family members must adhere to the requirement of General Order OPORD 1000-10 (U).
It is impossible to cover all combinations of attire. The goal is to blend with the local environment and not draw undue attention to yourself. Civilian attire will present a neat, conservative appearance. Clothing will be loose fitting and concealing. Neither males nor females shall wear shirts or blouses of sheer fabric that could be considered revealing. Long pants are required between sunset and sunrise in all hotels, restaurants and clubs without exception (excluding fast food restaurants). Capri and cropped pants are considered long pants for women. Casual shorts will not be more than 2 inches above the knee for both male and female. Conservative slacks, denim pants (jeans), skirts, dresses, or shorts and collared shirts are generally acceptable. Shirts or ball caps with military, political, religious, musical, or heavy metal logos should not be worn.
Traditional host-nation male attire (thobe and guttra) and female attire (abaya) shall not be worn by U.S. personnel or family members.
