Financial services must not be provided to charitable funds and religious, sporting, social, cooperative and professional societies, before an original certificate authenticated by the relevant Ministry confirming the identities of those purporting to act on their behalf (and authorising them to obtain the said service) has been obtained. Money changers are allowed to conduct business with charities without a certificate where payment is made by a cheque drawn on a bank licensed in Bahrain.
