Cash coming into Bahrain via courier (whether a representative of a Bahrain money changer or a foreign institution) must be accompanied by original documentation stating the source of funds and identity of the originator of the funds. Furthermore, the documentation must state the full name and address of the beneficiary of the funds. This documentation must be signed in original by (a representative) of the originator of the cash. This means that where a courier is importing cash via any customs point of entry (e.g. via the Causeway or the Airport), the aforementioned courier must carry original documentation which clearly shows the source of funds and identity of the originator of the funds and the intended beneficiaries' names and address.
