Introduction to Bahrain

Instead of repeating what’s already out there on the Internet about the History of Bahrain, here we would like to give a view of Bahrain for expats.

Accommodating just over a million people (majority of them expats), Bahrain is and has always been the most liberal and welcoming country in the Gulf region. You will find expats from almost every part of the world but most come from India, Pakistan, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, the United States, France and many more countries. Despite being right in the middle of the Middle East, the country welcomes all people from all religions, including Christians, Jews and Hindus. So no matter which religion you follow, you will be made to feel welcome here.

Despite the uprising and the protests happened in 2011, the country is absolutely safe to live and work. Like in any other country, there are areas where we would not recommend expats to live in (more on that later), however vast majority of the country is safe to live, work and enjoy.
