Health Insurance Scheme

From 10th April, 2000 health insurance was made mandatory for expatriates. No residence is renewed unless the premium for health insurance is paid and the renewal period is also linked to the period of health insurance coverage (details covered in Chapter - 3). Expatriates holding health insurance from local private insurance companies will be allowed to renew their residence for the period of validity of the insurance.
