    • khisore

      Best option is send our family back any way stay here is 4 times the cost in our native country (what was our prime target to come here earn more and save more).
      Hence forth this rules will increase saving for exparts and just be optmistic and confined to your prime objective send more money to native country.
      Insurance rule is again non islamic law for ummarh and hajj pilgrims.

  • M.N.Khan.

    Regarding medical insurance govt.should also announce to put the responsibility on the company or kafeel for payment of premium.beside that the insurance is against islamic law. In the past when social insurance policy finished by the saudi govt. We received only 5% which was deducted from our slaries but the 8% percentage paid by the company was notreturned to us by the govt.i ask is it a justice.plz do consider my comments

    Assalamalakum views please give me replay if we came on visit visa also must have insurance

  • Saeed Ahmed


    I am covered by my company . My mother lives with me on permanent visa. She is not covered by insurance. She is 60 plus. How I can get her medical insurance? Regards.

  • Ak

    This rule was implemented for few weeks last year, but it is on hold for dependents till now.

    As for visit visa, it is not implemented at all.

    in both the cases if any one wants to get insurance, then we can get from our company HR by paying extra or by going other insurance companies. Price varies from 500~800 Sr for male & 1000~1800 Sr for female members.
    Hope this helps
