ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On 16 April 2009, the Labour Market Regulatory Authority of Bahrain announced a liberalization of the regulations for foreign workers. From the beginning of August 2009, foreign workers are allowed to change their job without the consent of their employer. Under the prior Employer Sponsorship System, foreign workers could not change companies freely as it would trigger the termination of their work visa.
Under Decree 79 (2009), foreign workers may terminate their contract with a three months notice.
