Qatar: Health Insurance Law to Be Applied to Visitors​

Alsharq, 28 January 2023: The Qatari Public Health Ministry has started the first phase of the Health Insurance Law implementation in Qatar Law No. 22/2021, covered by Qatar Ministerial Decision No. 17/2022.

This decision states that a health insurance policy must cover visitors to Qatar.

The ministry has said that the required health insurance policy must only cover basic health care needs such as A&E treatment.

The compulsory policy must be purchased for a single visa for 30 days at the cost of 50 Riyals when it is first issued and every time the visa is renewed.

Visitors can choose one of the registered companies to provide them this service by visiting the Ministry website.
