Companies with over 24 employees must have group health insurance

According to a recent report, businesses with more than 24 employees are required to purchase group health insurance from a single insurance provider for all employees and family members. Due to this, the individual cannot purchase insurance for himself or his family members who are sponsored by him.

Insurance coverage is required for Iqama renewal. The registration of a new group insurance policy takes a few weeks due to the lengthy process.

However, businesses with fewer than 24 employees may purchase insurance on an individual basis.
