Must Know 

Bahrain is an island approximately 240 square miles in size located off the coast of Saudi Arabia.

A medium size NEX shop is available for all of your shopping needs.

An excellent DODDS school is available for grades K-12, offering advance placement courses from high school into college, and an international baccalaureate program.

Housing on the economy for all ranks is excellent. There is no on-base housing except barracks. E-5 and above permanently assigned personnel reside on the economy. OHA/LQA is authorized and will adequately cover the cost of rent and utilities. Upon arrival, military personnel are authorized up to 45 days temporary lodging allowance (TLA) and DOD civilians are authorized up to 60 days of TQSA.

The HSC provides detailed market information, contract administrative services, and a showing service. A period of 2-3 weeks is usually required to identify suitable housing and a further week to complete lease paperwork. Voltage is 220v, 50hz. Major appliances are provided by the landlord. 99% of leased housing are fully furnished, therefore there is no need to ship household goods but maybe shipment of a vehicle is desired. Even though pets are allowed in some housing with no deposit required, most landlords do not prefer to rent to members with pets due to cultural & religious reasons, especially dogs. Contact your designated sponsor or family service center for specific requirements on shipping and importing pets to Bahrain.
