The Information and eGovernment Authority (iGA) urged the public to complete their ID Card transactions through the National Portal, bahrain.bh.
The National Portal offers more than 10 Identity card services in both English and Arabic. iGA stated that all online transactions requests conducted will only be delivered via Bahrain Post once completed, noting that applicants visiting the ID Card centres in person will not be able to receive the delivery of their requests in any of the branches as they will be delivered to them directly.
Services unavailable online that require attendance in-person can be carried out at Isa Town ID Card Centre branch, and the Mina Salman branch will continue offering its services to the expats in the Kingdom.
iGA also announced a change in the working hours of the ID Card Centres. Starting from Sunday 29th March, until further notice, the Isa Town and Mina Salman branches will function from Sunday to Thursday, from 8am to 2pm with the Fast Track service office also operating as per the new timings in Isa Town. The Isa Town branch will be closed on Saturday.
The Muharraq branch at Seef Mall will remain closed until further notice, due to the transfer of certain operations to the Isa Town branch and the availability of all other services online via Bahrain.bh.
It is important to note that appointments must be made in advance via the National Portal, bahrain.bh to visit Isa Town or Mina Salman ID center.
Under current circumstances, iGA is excluding mandatory fingerprint for children over 4 years until further notice to ensure the health of this age group is not compromised or effected.
