Committee of organizing Engineering Professional Practice ( COEPP )

Dear All,

I have atlast landed in bahrain after so many constrains on 22nd of Dec 2014 , My employeer first gave me a non-engineer visa . But few days back they want to change my visa to Engineer visa , They took my experience and educational documents and told they have to submit this to COEPP ! and also asked me to bring my originals .

But when I check about  Committee of organizing Engineering Professional Practice - COEPP I didn't find much information ...

My HR told they are getting some membership for me then only I can apply for a Engineer visa ... I don't understand this COEPP is for a firm not for a individual isn't it ?

I am in a confusing state whether they are keeping my original for what and what is this COEPP ?

Please guide me soon !

Thanks ,

Kind regards,


An old thread that appears to have never been answered. COEPP is Bahrain's state level licensing system for Engineers, similar to the licensing system used in the US, Canada, Spain and many other countries. The original question is correct in that the license is issued to the company and not the Engineer. However, the license is only issued against a physical office within Bahrain, which must be run by a Bahraini Engineer, licensed by the Kingdom.

One have to get CRPEP LICENSE first to get visa. Company HR will guide through the process. It takes min. 3 weeks after application to get one.

CRPEP license takes maximum of 21 working days as per website...For me it took 13 working days..(did it on Sep 2017) You have to provide your engineering certificates along with the experience letters,PP
