Receive Pre-employment Health Check Results much sooner than you expected!

Ensuring that you conduct easier experience when completing your government transactions is one of the Information & eGovernment Authority’s (iGA) key priorities. For that; businessmen, investors and employers are able to smoothly carry-out their transactions related to their foreign employees’ medical checks through the national portal (bahrain.bh) by collaborating with private sector medical facilitates to cater to their requirements.

The ‘Pre-Employment Health Check-up for Expatriate Workers’ enhanced service shortens waiting time of having a health check-up appointment from 3-4 months down to only 1 week. What’s better, fitness report certificates are processed within 1 week through the system when it previously took 1 month to issue!

The Ministry of Health – in collaboration with iGA, Labour Market Regulatory Authority (LMRA) and the National Health Regulatory Authority – provide employers with the option to accelerate timespan of procedures via the two types of services completed at the 25 licensed private medical facilities and fully trained on the new system. Accessible in LMRA’s website and Bahrain.bh, the ‘Standard’ service enables the employer to book appointments assigned based on availability across these facilities. The ‘Premium’ enables employers to choose and benefit from a wide range of medical facilities (costs follow the standard rate of medical facilities/service providers).

Upon the arrival of the expatriate employees to Bahrain International Airport, employees’ fingerprints are captured electronically then assigned an appointment based on the type of service selected by the employer. The Authority has also made it possible to verify expatriate employees’ identity through their fingerprints before making the required check-ups.

To deliver high-level, high-quality government services to citizens and residents; iGA simplified government procedures to simplify and speed the check-up medical process for private and public sector employees together with their families. Additionally, avoid any delays by saving employers time knowing their new joiners’ health conditions regarding if they are fit for the job to commence work or must return home.

For any suggestions or enquiries, please contact the National Suggestions & Complaints System ‘Tawasul’ at Bahrain.bh/tawasul or visit the national portal via bahrain.bh.
