The government is working to help Bangladeshis return to Bahrain, the ministry says

The Bahrain government has regularized visas of 30,000 Bangladeshis amid the Covid-19 pandemic under the nine-month general amnesty from April to December last year with 25,000 more irregular Bangladeshis there.

The government of Bangladesh has requested the Bahrain government for regularization of the irregular Bangladeshis or renewal of visas of those which got expired, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA). 

The Bahrain government did not send back any Bangladeshi forcibly amid the pandemic, the ministry said.

However, many Bangladeshis returned home either willingly or due to Covid-19 situation, it said.

The Bahrain government only deported those Bangladeshis who were in prison or in deportation camps under a general amnesty, MoFA said.

The government of Bangladesh is continuing diplomatic efforts to resume visas for Bangladeshis which remain halted since 2018.

The government is working sincerely to send back Bangladeshi expatriates to Bahrain who had returned home before outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic, it said.

Bangladesh Mission in Bahrain is in constant communication with the Bahrain government. 

Bangladeshi expatriates, who had returned home before the pandemic and whose visas got expired, were urged to register online with the Bangladesh Mission in Manama to renew their visas.

However, only 967 Bangladeshi expatriates registered online.

Bangladesh Mission has already submitted the list to Bahrain Foreign Ministry requesting to consider their cases.

There is still scope for those who are yet to register online to renew their visas.
