What is the Parallel Bahrainisation System?

It is a system to help companies that need more of work permits for non-Bahrainis, but they did not reach the level of Bahrainisation which qualify them to get them.

The new system provides those who wish to obtain additional work permits and do not reach the required Bahrainisation proportion and they can pay an additional amount of the issue fee for each new permit issued outside the prescribed Bahrainisation proportion.

Parallel Bahrainisation System shall apply to new permits from the date of 02/05/2016, and will apply for renewal starting from 02/05/2017.
