Bahrain Visa Status

edited November 2008 in - Other M East
Hi I am South African female working in bahrain... how would I check my status of my visa? I've been sponsored by a hotel here in Bahrain but they refuse to issue me copy of my visa. My passport says I have one month stay in Bahrain but I'd like to know if i am on vistors visa or working visa?

    Hi Livi,
    First up, the hotel is legally obliged to give you a copy of the visa. If they wont give you one, it could be that they haven't done the paperwork properly and that puts you in a shaky position. Go speak to your local embassy - they are paid to provide assistance and advice to people like you.

    hi check out this site this should help. You need to apply for work in Bahrain or get a private sponsor. Best to look for work. Good Luck

    Hi All-
    Just to clarify, in order to work legally in Bahrain you'll need a work permit - which can only be applied for by a Bahraini national. Either you'll get this through a job offer organised by a formal Bahraini employer, or if you're self-employed and planning to open a business on the island you'll hire the help of an agency to do this for your.
    It is possible to travel to Bahrain on a tourist visa and try to find a sponsor in the short duration of your stay, but this route is much more difficult than registering with international recruitment agencies offering positions in the country.

    Once the visa process is completed you get a stamp in your passport from your local consulate and you can start working in Bahrain. For more information visit the Expat Arrivals Work Permits in Bahrain page.

    Hi, i'm an Indian and my employer has applied for my work visa about 9 days ago. i did check my status using passport no and my Nationality and it shows the Employment Visa is in progress. they told me it usually takes about 10 days... is that true? and also i was told once the LMRA confirms every thing then i need to wait for immigration to grant my visa which takes few more days. if this is true, i need to know in spite of LMRA accepting every thing and shows ok or confirmed with my case could immigration decline visa to me, cause i have born in Iran and have Persian name though i'm having Indian passport. by the way i was working as IT in Bahrain in 2006 end to 2008 end without any problem completed my 2 years and left the kingdom back to India. and now got a good offer again.
    appreciate your help.
    many thanks in advance.
