Facing reality.

This is to the anonymous writer who feels that people, Brits in particular, are unjustifiably complaining about the recent price hikes for visas on arrival. I am sure if the UK raised the cost of visa processing by 300 per cent, there would be a few very vocal Bahrain nationals who would be somewhat displeased by this decision.

I can empathise with your annoyance that you have to "jump through hoops" to get a UK visit visa, but unless you have been hiding under a rock the last few years you will be aware that the UK has arguably the biggest immigration problem of all developed European countries.

This screening process is not there to annoy you; it is purely in place to make the best possible inquiries into the motive of your visit.

My wife has to jump through the same hoops as you for a UK visa and it's just one of those things that is what it is and if you don't like it, don't go to England, simple!
