Bahrain: LMRA Conducts 1,052 Inspection Campaigns

The Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) announced the implementation of 1,052 inspection campaigns and visits, during the week of 3 to 9 of March 2024, which resulted in the detention of 111 violating and irregular workers, while 162 violators were deported.

The inspection campaigns and visits also resulted in the monitoring of a number of violations related to the provisions of a number of regulating laws, especially the Labour Market Regulatory Authority and the Residency Laws in the Kingdom of Bahrain, noting that legal measures were taken regarding the observed violations.

The Authority explained that 1,031 inspection visits were carried out on various shops in all governorates, in addition to 21 joint inspection campaigns, that included 9 campaigns in the Capital Governorate; 3 campaigns in the Muharraq Governorate; 4 campaigns in the Northern Governorate, and 5 campaigns in the Southern Governorate.

The government entities that participated in the campaigns are the Ministry of Interior, represented by the Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA), the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation and Forensic Evidence, and the Governorate’s Police Directorates, as well as the Coast Guard, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce, and North Area Municipality.

The Authority affirmed the continuation of joint coordination with government agencies to intensify inspection campaigns in all governorates of the kingdom, and to address any violations or practices that negatively affect the stability and competitiveness of the labour market or harm the economic and social security of the kingdom.

The Labour Market Regulatory Authority renewed its call on all members of society to support the efforts of government agencies in addressing illegal labour practices, by reporting violations via the electronic form on the authority’s website or by calling the Authority’s call centre on 17506055 or via the government’s Suggestions and Complaints System (Tawasul).
