This paper used the descriptive method of research and employed Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test and Spearmanís Rank test as the non parametric statistical tool. The primary data were gathered from the 56 male and 62 female Filipino OFW respondents from Manama area using the structured survey questionnaire. This study examined the profile of the respondents and investigated the different push and pull factors of Filipino labor migration in the Kingdom of Bahrain. It also answered the different problems presented in the research and it proved and disapproved the stated hypothesis. It was revealed that there is no significant difference in the perception of the male and female respondents as to the rank of the push factors of Filipino labor migration but there is a significant difference in terms of the rank of push factors as perceived by the respondents. The study also determined that there is no significant relationship between the push factors and the Filipino labor migration in Bahrain but there is a significant relationship in the pull factors and the Filipino labor migration as perceived by the respondents.
