The Kingdom of Bahrain is actually a group of 33 islands off the coast of Saudi Arabia in the Persian Gulf. During the first decade of the twenty-first century, Bahrain was often cited as being one of the fasted growing economies in the Arab world. Even today, despite the recent global slowdown, Bahrain continues to play a significant role in the global economy - particularly due to its free economy and hub for Islamic banking and petroleum production and processing - which accounts for a staggering two-thirds of government receipts.
We work with international couriers to send parcels around the world, so we have discounted shipping rates to destinations including Bahrain. We currently offer an excellent, fully tracked DPD service to this destination for a very low price, which is collected from your home or work address.
This is very popular as the recipient can receive updates on their parcel if they download the DPD App allowing them to make changes to the final delivery if they are not at home. All the customs documents are handled online when you book with DPD, so just need to print a shipping label. However, you will still need to give a detailed overview of the parcel contents and provide a local contact number so Customs or the courier can make contact should there be any issues with the delivery.
We also offer Express parcel delivery via DHL, for a speedy 2-3 day delivery. If you need an Express shipping service that is a little cheaper, then try our very own Parcel Monkey Air Express courier service which is almost half the price of the DHL Express service, but only takes one day longer. This is collected by Parcelforce and delivered by DHL in Bahrain.
Parcelforce also has their own service available for you to book via our money saving quote engine, which will see your parcel arrive in Bahrain in just 3 working days. You can either have the parcel collected from your home or work address or drop off at your local Post Office at a time that suits you.
TrakPak offers a tracked mail service from the UK to Bahrain allowing you to post packages that are not urgent. Designed for the eCommerce market, a courier will come and pick up your parcel and take it to TrakPak who sort it and send it to Bahrain. Then the Bahrain Post Office will handle the last leg of delivery ensuring a safe delivery to the recipient. It is important to provide a working contact number so the Post Office or Customs can contact the recipient to collect any Customs Duty or arrange the pick up from a local Post Office.
If you want an economy option to send a heavy parcel to Bahrain, again consider our TrakPak service. TrakPak is a bespoke service made for the eCommerce industry designed to give online retailers an affordable way to send parcels around the globe even when they are heavy. Our customers make the most of this service also for sending heavy goods as it is very cheap to do so, whilst it is also fully tracked.
Tourism is of growing importance to the economy, partly due to its staging of an F1 Grand Prix, most of the visitors, however, originate from other Arab countries. Most of the trade between the UK and Bahrain is of non-physical goods, however, we do see a steady stream of packages being sent to the Kingdom of Bahrain and often they are heavy containing gifts or personal belongings - sometimes even spare parts related to businesses.
We serve a great number of expat families in Bahrain as well as their employers if they're located in the UK. Great air transport connections and facilities in Bahrain allow for a two to three day courier service to Bahrain. If you would like to find the cheapest courier prices to send a parcel to Bahrain, then you can quickly fill out this courier quotes form and we'll do our best to give you the cheapest prices and most reliable service.
Not all addresses have postcodes in Bahrain, but where possible you can use the locality code. In four-digit postcodes, the first two digits identify the region. Please always provide a working contact number for the recipient so they can be reached by the courier should there be any delivery issue.
Being a country proud of its Islamic faith there are some cultural import restrictions as well as those you would expect when sending overseas such as no alcohol, liquids, batteries or nail varnish.
Please make sure you're fully aware of the latest restrictions via their official Bahrain Customs website. Furthermore, there are items that have restricted, i.e. controlled importation rules. This list can be found >here.
Postage to Bahrain has been unreliable through Royal Mail. A recommendation from a friend brought me to Parcelmonkey. Easy to follow website. Easy to choose the service I wanted and complete the details. I chose DPD and they collected my parcel when they said they would with text message updates. The tracking available to me and the addressee was great and the parcel was delivered within a week-that was something we never thought possible!
My parcel reached its destiny in 3 working days. They picked up the package as scheduled. All well. Rg
