However, many Bangladeshis returned home either willingly or due to COVID-19 situation, it said.
The Bahrain government only deported those Bangladeshis who were in prison or in deportation camps under a general amnesty, it said.
The government of Bangladesh is continuing diplomatic efforts to resume visas for Bangladeshis which remain halted since 2018.
The government is working sincerely to send back Bangladeshi expatriates to Bahrain who had returned home before outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, it said.
Bangladesh Mission in Bahrain is in constant communication with the Bahrain government.
Bangladeshi expatriates, who had returned home before the pandemic and whose visas expired, were urged to register online with the Bangladesh Mission in Manama to renew their visas.
However, only 967 Bangladeshi expatriates registered online.
Bangladesh Mission has already submitted the list to Bahrain Foreign Ministry, requesting to consider their cases.
There is still scope for those who are yet to register online to renew their visas.
