Anybody had any luck trying to get the GOOD CONDUCT CERTIFICATE from Bahrain??

My fiancé worked abroad there for 2 years (over the 6 months that requires the certificate). Problem is you have to mail a request for the form, then wait to receive the form, then send back the form, then wait for them to send you the certificate! ggggrrrrrrr

Is there an easier way?? This is gonna hold us up.... I know it!!

why was this moved to MENA? Our petition is for the Philippines...

To obtain a Bahraini GOOD CONDUCT CERTIFICATE, write to: General Directorate of Criminal Investigation (CID), P.O. Box 26698, Manama, State of Bahrain. The letter should contain a request for an application for a "Good Conduct Certificate" (Form PS/CID/6) with a statement explaining that the certificate is needed for immigration. Applicants should complete and return it to the CID at the above address along with the following:

Two matte (i.e., non-glossy) photographs;

A photocopy of the first four pages of the applicant's passport;(where all the biographic data is mentioned)

A photocopy of all previous Bahraini residence permits;

A letter from the applicant's current employer indicating that they have no objection to the applicant's departure.

If the applicant is living in Bahrain, the CID will schedule an interview, during which the applicant will be fingerprinted. The certificate is usually issued within 3-5 days after the interview. Records are somewhat unreliable prior to 1967. There is a fee for this service of Bahrain Dinars 1.000 or U.S. $3.00 for this service. Checks and Bank Drafts are not accepted.

Applicants no longer living in Bahrain should follow the same procedure and provide the same documentation. However, they will also have to provide a set of fingerprints taken by local police in their country of residence.

If there is a Bahrain Embassy where the applicant resides, the can contact the Bahrain Embassy to complete the necessary formalities.

Note: Certificates are not issued for holders of visitor's visas. In order for CID to issue a Good Conduct Certificate, an applicant must currently have, or previously have had, a valid residence permit in Bahrain.

Yes I'm familiar with the "process". I'm just asking if anyone has had experience with it. I called the Philippine embassy in Bahrain and they said it takes 3-6 months! That's longer than the petition!

Brian, I had to get the certificate for my current job and I will need to get one for my interview at the London embassy when the time comes round. I am going to apply for it well in advance - perhaps when we mail the i-129f next month as it took about 5 months to come through for my job which resulted in being grounded for a few months, which sucked. I was on the phone to them every day and the guy at the embassy in the end gave me a contact actually in Bahrain who dealt with it. They are not the fastest people at processing things like this, I suggest you get onto it NOW!

GOod luck!

Yeah, the problem is we just got our NOA2!! It sucks to have to wait so long to get it just to find out you have to wait again. I've heard different things from different people about how long it takes, but you're right..... none of them move fast enough for me. Luckily I'm the impatient type and will probably bug them daily until they do something about it. lol However, someone told her yesterday that she had to wait till she had her packet! I don't know what that's about, but it shouldn't be necessary. They should still do it. It drives me nuts that I can't be there and help her. Thanks for your reply and sharing your experience. :)

We did fine. It took a little less than 3 months to get the certificate. We were told once she turned it in they would go ahead and mail out her visa. That was over 3 weeks ago. I'm really getting tired of dealing with this Embassy. I'm sending her down there to speak with them face to face and see if we can light a fire under their #### and get this done! There's nothing else to do but add the one letter to the file and review it, then send it out! I just don't get it!

because bahrain is in the middle eastheadbonk.gif

Really? Bahrain is in the middle east??? You're a smart one! The reason it was posted in the Philippines forum is for advice from others who had worked abroad there FROM PI and get there experiences with it. Obviously if she were still in Bahrain she would have walked in there personally and gotten it herself. Thanks for your unnecessary comment though. :thumbs:
