Regarding those who have declared their religion as Baha’i, that:

Employment is prohibited of those who have openly declared their religion as Baha’i. This matter was discussed by phone with the acting supervisor of the Department some time ago. On several occasions, the legal office has reiterated its ruling that belief in one of the officially recognized religions is a condition for employment.

Until now, that decision remains unchanged; please act in accordance with the regulations.
