Default Bahrain - Bristish family residence

Hello, do you think it's possible to live in Bahrain with a family without having a residence (keep going in and out every 3 months). I'm a freelance and my contract is with a European company. I can have a local sponsor to have a work permit, but this would cost me 800 EUR per month!
Thanks in advance

I am not sure what you mean by "having a local sponsor". I suppose you meat the usual practice of somebody sponsoring you as if you were employed by his company and pay for the service.
This is not legal, although widespread among those that cannot obtain a tourist visa. I think your quote it is expensive, I have heard around 1500 BHD for a two years sponsorship for a family, but I have not tried myself. BTW I used to live in Bahrain, in the process of moving now.

I will be employed by a company who will pay me a salary and the structure would cost me 800 EUR per month. I will also need to pay for CPRs, family visas ...

Best to get badged up.

I pay 13k USD for three of us, that includes plenty of wasta from our sponsor, driving licenses, help etc. Also, how can your kids attend school with no CRPs?

Ive been quoted that - but that is with dodgy agents who hook up Pakistani plasterers. He'd probably end up as a male masseuse on his CPR.
