Hi poulosekiran - it's always a good idea to have attested copies of all your important documents in case they are asked for again further along the line of your visa application process. It's also a good idea to have a copy of your resume at hand in case they ask for this to prove that you are suitably qualified for the job. In general, the work visa application provess for Bahrain is not a complicated one. Have a look at the Work Permits for Bahrain page for further general info about the process.
