Work Visa process

Hi, need to get info on how long the work visa process is taking? I am now waiting for my visa as the employer initially mentioned to apply for me. I've checked thru the express service but still no application yet in the record. My friend have been in Bahrain for 4 years and he said Bahranians is usually taking their sweet time to do a task. is that true? Thanks.

:)Hi,
hmm as u have asked "how long the work visa process is taking"
I'll say it depends on your nationality & documents uploaded for VISA . LMRA(express service ) generally taking Maximum three days to respond & if there is any mistake in your documents they will let you know . Next step for New visa application is CIO & immigration(GDNPR)The most important step is under GDNPR << if everything is fine you will grant a visa within few hours .

And Your friend is Right :D ( but not everywhere ;)

It's only been a week. Take it easy and speak to your employer as this is what they do day in day out. You don't need to worry about it yet. There is plenty of time.

Re: Work Visa process

Your application is not delayed yet, it's only been a week. It takes at least 2 weeks and sometimes a month.

The best advice on this would be to keep in touch with your employer. They will give you more precise information about the status of your application.

Re: Work Visa process

But lmra shows that it would take a maximum of ten working days ..means 3 days in lmra+2days in cio +5 days in GDNPR.so is there any possibility to delay dat
