Bahrain Bureau: The Labour Market Regulatory Authority’s announcement comes as part of the Kingdom of Bahrain’s efforts to regulate its labour market and ensure that all workers are in compliance with the laws and regulations set by LMRA. Irregular workers and Flexi permit holders are encouraged to take immediate action to avoid facing legal consequences, including possible deportation, in the future.
The LMRA’s Labour Registration Program is designed to help workers correct their legal status and ensure that they are working in the Kingdom of Bahrain in compliance with the law. The program is open to all eligible workers, including those with expired, invalid, or Flexi permits, who wish to obtain a valid work permit.
To verify their eligibility for the Labour Registration Program, workers can visit an Approved Registration Centre, check LMRA’s website, or send an SMS to a designated number. The LMRA has also set up a Call Centre to assist workers with any questions they may have regarding their eligibility or the registration process.
This announcement serves as a reminder for workers to take the necessary steps to ensure their legal status in the Kingdom of Bahrain before the deadline. LMRA has emphasized that it will be taking a stricter stance on immigration laws and regulations, and those who do not comply may face severe consequences.
It is a crucial reminder for workers in the Kingdom of Bahrain to take the necessary steps to correct their legal status before the 4th of March 2023 deadline. LMRA is committed to ensuring a fair and regulated labour market, and all workers are encouraged to comply with the laws and regulations set forth by the Authority.
LMRA calls all workers to verify their eligibility for the Labour Registration Program through the Approved Registration Centres or by visiting LMRA’s website at www.lmra.bh and using the “Eligibility Verification Service”, or by sending an SMS that includes the worker’s personal number to +973 33150150, or by contacting the LMRA Call Centre on +973 17103103.
