Documents Required To Get Health Insurance Category: Legal
Kuwaitlocal Kuwaitlocal

One of my friends went for family insurance at an insurance office and they asked for results of finger prints. At that time my friend didn’t have a copy of the finger print results.

One of the insurance agents told him that it’s compulsory but added “If you don’t have the results just pay KD 3 and we can manage to give you the health insurance”.

Are the finger print results required for health insurance and if so please inform the public through the media even though we have not seen any news item on this subject.

Please advise us as to what we should do.

Answer: You need the following documents to get the health insurance card for your dependent.

1. Two Civil ID copies of the sponsor

2. Two copies of the dependent’s Civil ID and passport copy

3. A passport size photograph (this photograph will be scanned for the health card and returned)

Please, however, remember that for the first-time residents you will need the following:

1. Two Civil ID copies of the sponsor

2. Two copies of the dependent’s passport

3. A passport size photograph (this photograph will be scanned for the health card and returned)

The important thing to note here is that you don’t need the fingerprint results to get a health card nor do you have to pay KD 3 as service charges.

The processing charges are only KD 1.

The health fees for wife is KD 40 per year and KD 30 for each child per year.

So, with the service charges, if you are planning to get residence for one year you have to pay KD 41 for the wife and KD 31 for each child.

Some health centers try to make some extra money by asking you for KD 3 or even KD4 as service charges.
