Comments

The Ministry of Industry and Commerce in Bahrain provides a dedicated website for the company register (http://www.business.gov.bh/ ) that allows the public to search or browse the register and find up to date details about any company with information including the company registration number, address, telephone number, shareholders, registered activities and more.

To browse the register, select "Information Request" at the side. The information is sorted by Block (area), Industry or Company Type, and at least one of these criteria must be chosen to make a search; but the data can otherwise be browsed freely.

To perform a search with keywords, select "Search" at the side and enter the company name or registry number to obtain search results.
