Bahrain’s Ministry of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Awqaf has an online service in cooperation with the Informatics and eGovernment Authority that aims to assist citizens and residents to easily obtain information concerning their legal status in relation to travel bans before considering travelling abroad.
This service allows citizens and residents to enquire about any verdicts issued from Execution Courts preventing them from travelling, with the ability to pay the amounts due for these verdicts.

Ability to settle financial claims
The online services also give individuals the ability to settle any outstanding financial claims online without resorting to a court order in order to lift the travel ban, which will effectively streamline the process and reduce procedural costs.
In addition, once all dues are settled through the online system, a text message (SMS) is immediately sent to the individual confirming that the travel ban has been lifted.
The Nationality, Passports and Resident Affairs will be notified to ensure that all issues are resolved with immigration authorities at any port of departure, including Bahrain’s International Airport.
“The new service will provide citizens and residents easy access to a highly secured and regularly updated centralised system in order to confirm that they are not banned from travelling by any court order starting from July 2008,” Minister of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments Shaikh Khalid bin Ali Al Khalifa said while launching the service.
“This will spare individuals from incurring any unnecessary costs associated with travel arrangements should there be a ban in place,” he said.
