Nepali migrant workers from Bahrain return

 The government has rescued some 146 Nepali migrant workers via charter flights from Bahrain today.

Those people were stranded in various places of Bahrain due to Covid-19 outbreak and its effect in their job settlement, according to a press note issued by the Foreign Ministry. 

Likewise, some 145 Nepali migrant workers, who were in Bahrain on leave but got stuck for long due to the halt of international flights were also sent back to Bahrain to resume the job, according to Nepali ambassador to Bahrain Padam Sundas.

As many as 1,300 Nepali migrant workers lost their jobs in Bahrain after hotels and restaurants were closed due to pandemic, Sundas informed, adding that the embassy has been working out to send remaining Nepalis back home and also to Bahrain, if they wish to return to their jobs. “A large number of Nepali migrant workers were found aspiring to return to Nepal and they would be sent home soon.”
