Hello, how to inform the LMRA? Os it thru letter or email or go to their office? Thanx


The best way would be to visit the LMRA office.


After 1 year u can change job without the consent of employer.  Just send resignation through registered post with pink card.  Hand over the card to new employer he will submit it with other documents when applying for ur visa transfer

Y pink card

Pink card u will fill n give which will be posted back to ur address after delivery the notice to employer.  U can use it as proof that u sent notice on this date

Hi am Roni here I have to ask you a question regarding lmra rules this is about my case I have been working in Bahrain for the last one year and now I have decided to go back when I spoke with my HR about this he said I will have to pay for the visa charges as my contract was for 2 years can you plz advise if this is correct as  I feel this is wrong

roni, you can call the lmra hotline, and they will give a good solution

Am sorry do u have there contact number

are you a pilipino? you can check there hotline on internet or you can go lmra sehla branch direct and they will give you a good protection

No am a Indian keralite anyways thanks for your help God bless you

They r lying. The got visa fee refund if u do transfer from one job to other. But u may have to pay penalty for breaking the contract

Am more than 7 years in Bahrain in same company . But I want to change my company . Please tall me what I can do ..***

If you dont want to exit Bahrain, you can search for a new job first, once you find a new job out ask your old employer to release you (apply for mobility) and move to the new one.

Good luck
