LMRA resumes work permit issuance

MANAMA: Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) yesterday announced that it will start accepting requests for new work permits from August 9, following its temporary suspension in March due to Covid-19.

The decision to reopen work permit issuance will allow private employers to hire employees from abroad, and comes following a decision issued by the Government Executive Committee, chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Prime Minister.

The LMRA has altered the private sector’s hiring process by requiring the announcement of vacancies in local newspapers, to allow interested Bahrainis and expatriates residing in the kingdom to apply for postings for a duration of two weeks.

The LMRA said this decision will help prioritise local hiring, and help Bahrainis and expatriates currently residing in the kingdom.
