Bahrain’s Cabinet has approved a decision reducing some Labour Market Regulatory Authority fees. Fees for the issuing and renewing of all work permits issued for one year and all monthly fees related to them have been reduced by 50%. The reduced fees will remain in force for three months from July 2020. In addition, employers who engage in business activities most affected by Coronavirus are exempt from paying these fees for three months from 1 July. They will only be exempt if approved by the Deputy Prime Minister and chairman of the Ministerial Committee for Financial, Economic and Financial Balance Affairs.
