Keep In Mind- Before bringing your family to the Kingdom of Bahrein, you should consider many points, as I have explained in my other posts also, as Bahrain is a rich country so ultimately cost of living would be high, single apartment with one hall, bedroom and kitchen might cost 200 to 300 BD minimum, the cost of food and other expenses are nearly the same as other Gulf countries, you should have a good salary so you can save more money and can bear the family expenses.
Recently Bahrain has raised minimum salary requirement for getting the family visa, now an Expatriate who is working in Bahrein should have minimum 400 BD monthly salary !!
