New LMRA warning

hassan22

The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) has warned the public against dealing with unlicensed recruitment agencies. Legal action is being taken against those violating the authority’s rules and regulations that protect the rights of citizens and residents, LMRA planning and licensing director Hassan Al Rahma said.

LMRA continues to receive complaints about illegal employment offices on a daily basis, particularly from Bahrainis and expatriates applying for domestic workers, he said. He called on heads of families to only deal with licensed recruitment agencies, posted on its official website www. lmra.gov.bh, which is updated weekly. A total of 205 employment offices are registered to date.

Of these, 158 are fully compliant with LMRA’s conditions and requirements, he pointed out. Mr Al Rahma urged citizens to file their complaints in person at the authority’s headquarters (planning and licensing offices) and expect a reply within seven working days.

  5. To whom it may concern:

    It have concern regarding with my visa. I trusted my employer coz she said she will settle my visa, i went to LMRA a week ago to know what is going on why till now my boss is still not renewing my visa and i found out that my visa was terminated abd my cpr has been blocked already, that she have to settle all her cases on the court coz LMRA forwarded all her cases on the court that if she will not settle all her cases i will not be going to have visa under her and I ask my employer to just send me back home coz nobody wants to work illegally here in Bahrain but she refused to send me back home and if i insist she will put me on blacklist. My concern is, is there any other way that I can work here legally and find new employer coz my employer doesn’t look she’s bothered at all. And I don’t want to be illegal worker in her hence my employer is not doing something about my visa. She just keep on promising. there are companies willing to hire me if your good office can extend some help.

    Immediate response will be appreciated.

    More power.

  12. dear lmra

    its 3rd time that i am posting comment with a frustration that few of the frauds are taken place with fake offer letter and fake visa on the name of roenz induatries and construction company and they asked us to pay 40000 thousand in the name of visa process and flight tickets but they ran away from bahrain and entered successfully in india. we got call from the mobile number +97334475351 by telling his name as manish mohindra and all the fraud happened with this number and from india one of lady leaded this fraud with mobile no. +918130765551.by telling her name as pooja agarwal. when ever i asked queries regarding visa status lmra simply replied with sending a link instead of solving the issue . really its a shameful think if frauds happening even in a reputed country as bahrain .
    my humble request is atleast take the action severely upon the said persons by tracing the signals of there mobile numbers and cctv images
