Guide to Checking Your Work & Legal Status in Bahrain

If you’re not sure about the legal status and validity of your work permit in Bahrain, you can always make an inquiry — simply by sending a text message! Just be sure to have your identity card number ready, and follow these steps:

  1. Send a text message containing your identity card number to the Labor Market Regulatory Authority (+973 1738 8888) using this format: CPR 123456789.
  2. Wait for a text message from LMRA, indicating your legal status in the Kingdom.
  3. Pay for the service fee (50 fils) when you receive your mobile phone bill. It’s that easy!

Meanwhile, if you are worried about travel bans, the Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Awqaf provides a Travel Ban Enquiry service. This determines whether or not a legal court has issued a verdict against you, thereby preventing you from travelling.

To inquire about travel bans, simply go to this website and enter your identity card number. If there’s a verdict issued against you, you can use this service to pay for the amounts due. Similarly, you can make a travel ban inquiry by going to the nearest eGovernment kiosk in these locations around Bahrain.
