In line with the Kingdom’s national efforts to limit the spread of infectious diseases, medical check-ups will be mandatory for employees in industrial and commercial establishments related to public health. The move, which will come into effect on 1st January 2021, will cover workers in barbershops, massage parlors, food manufacturing and packaging, food establishments, cosmetics, health clubs, resorts, and hotels.

To ensure speed and efficiency, and to help maintain social distancing, owners of these types of entities are advised to book their staff’s check-up appointments online via the National Portal bahrain.bh.

Developed by the Ministry of Health (MOH), in cooperation with the Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA), the ‘Periodic Medical Examination Appointment’ service allows business owners to book or reschedule their expatriate workers’ medical check-up reservations. Related services available on the portal enable them to view details of their employees’ appointments and fitness reports. Once fees are paid, workers who undergo tests are issued a certificate from relevant authorities stating that they are free of communicable diseases.

The service not only supports the Ministry’s efforts, but also offers a convenient way to complete an essential task, particularly as employees with expired certificates will not be permitted to continue working once the decision comes into effect in the new year.
