F1 provides boost in illegal immigration
Bahrain's General Directorate of Nationality, Passports and Residence is warning people who entered Bahrain on special F1 visas that it is now time to go home - or face legal action. It seems that there are hundreds of people unaccounted for at the moment and the GDNPR is warning that anyone who helps the illegal immigrants in Bahrain will also be liable for prosecution. Visas for the event expired on April 15. If caught the illegals will face six months in jail, a fine of $1300 or both. It seems that most of the missing visitors are women.
