I have a job offer in Manama. And I am joining by 20 Nov, 2017. The employer does not provide any health insurance. They say healthcare is provided by the Government and it is free and they have paid (72 BD) for it along with the Work visa.
In LMRA site, the healthcare status is given as ‘B’ .
I am so confused about this. Please explain in detail how the healthcare system works in Bahrain (for expats) ? Should I take any 3rd party health insurance/ travel insurance?
Also please let me know whether 1500 BD per month is a decent amount according to Manama standards ? How is the cost of living in Manama ? How much would one be able to save ?
Thanks is advance!!
