In response to rumours on social media regarding SMSs from (GOVBH), Information and eGovernment Authority confirms that the messages are valid and official. To verify the authenticity of the message, the user will be directed immediately to the official National Portal, www.bahrain.bh, which is the only registration platform.
The message was sent through telecom companies, in collaboration with TRA, as previously announced on 25th September 2019.
iGA reminds users to update their contact details in order to receive official government notifications related to their government transactions via SMS and email instead of notifying by post.
Bahrainis, residents, and GCC citizens can avail the service by visiting the National Portal at Bahrain.bh, or by following the link contained within the SMS.
To use the NotifyMe service on Bahrain.bh, users can log in with their eKey or ID card, then select ‘Register Contact Details’. Once the login attempt is successful, the system will request users to enter their mobile numbers and One-Time Passwords (OTP) which they will receive via SMS on the same mobile number. They can then click on the link they receive by emails to complete the registration process.
