The Nationality, Passports and Residence Affairs (NPRA) teamed up with the Labour and Social Development Ministry and the Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) to organise the awareness campaign for expatriate communities. The event was sponsored by the Bahrain National Gas company (Banagas), Lulu International Group, Colours Events Management Company and the Indian Club.
Held under the theme “Awareness, Discipline, Happiness”, the event was attended by a large number of expatriates, trade union and embassies’ representatives. Officials addressed the audience in different languages to highlight the residency rules to the expatriate communities as well as their rights and duties. Leaflets featuring instructions and advice were distributed.
The initiative focused on ways of seeking assistance or queries from concerned government authorities. Lulu Hypermarket distributed gifts to expatriates attending the event.
