  • An overview of the Kingdom of Bahrain’s excise rules and procedures in regard to the Digital Stamps Scheme.
  • The necessary guidance needed to navigate the Digital Stamps Scheme online portal and the process of ordering and tracking digital stamps from the perspective of an importer of excise products.
