When it comes to the treatment of expat labourers, Bahrain is the best in the region according to a top diplomat.

On Friday, Dr Mohan Kumar, India’s Ambassador, spoke at the embassy based in Adliya. The current joint secretary of Indian External Affairs Ministry, Alok Kumar Sinha, will replace Dr Mohan Kumar when his tenure finishes next month.

Dr Mohan said that he was very sorry to leave Bahrain and that he thought any envoy who had spent time in the country would feel the same. He went on to say that without the support of Bahrain, he would not have experienced all the successes he had. In his opinion, it is the legal framework in regards to labour mobility that makes Bahrain best in the region and that Indian expatriates are treated very well in the country.

Finally, Dr Mohan Kumar, spoke about the issue of travel bans which are imposed on some expat workers. He said that some people do not know of the ban that might be in place on them due to unpaid debts or outstanding verdicts, as they have not updated the relevant authorities about a change in their phone number or address. This causes confusion and unconformable situations when these people try to travel.
