The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) calls on all irregular workers in the Kingdom of Bahrain and Flexi permit holders to take immediate actions to correct their legal status prior to 4th of March 2023.

LMRA affirms that by the beginning of March, the necessary legal actions will be taken in coordination with the relevant government entities against all violators of LMRA laws and regulations in addition to intensified inspection campaigns and deportation operations conducted across all the governorates.

LMRA indicated that workers inside the Kingdom of Bahrain holding expired, invalid, or Flexi permits are eligible to register in the Labour Registration Program, with the exception of those with criminal offenses and those who are in violation of the terms stipulated in their current permits.

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.
