      Health Insurance for NRIs in Kuwait

      Health Insurance for NRIs in Kuwait offer financial coverage to Non-resident Indians or NRIs residing in Kuwait.

Moreover, some health plans also pay for medical expenses incurred outside India, including Kuwait.

      Can NRIs in Kuwait Buy Health Insurance Plans in India?


      All NRIs residing in Kuwait can buy health insurance plans from an insurance company in India. They are eligible to purchase medical insurance for themselves and their families while living in Kuwait or visiting India. The only thing required is proof of their Indian citizenship, which they can provide by submitting relevant documents like address proof, latest IT returns, etc.

      Why NRIs in Kuwait Should Buy Health Insurance from India?

      Take a look at some of the reasons why NRIs in Kuwait should buy health insurance from India:

      1. Affordable Premiums

        Healthcare is costlier to afford in Kuwait than in India, and thus, health insurance providers in the Middle Eastern country charge higher premiums. On the contrary, health insurance premiums are more affordable in India. Therefore, NRIs based in Kuwait can save money by purchasing medical insurance from an insurance company in India.

      2. Overseas Coverage

        Many health insurance plans available in India offer worldwide coverage for in-patient hospitalization expenses, day care procedures and maternity expenses. Thus, by buying medical insurance from India, Kuwait-based NRIs can get their healthcare expenses covered in India as well as in Kuwait.

      3. GST Refund

        All medical insurance plans in India charge a mandatory 18% GST as part of the premium amount. However, NRIs paying tax abroad do not have to pay this GST and can obtain a full refund if the policy is valid for 1 year and the premium was paid using an NRE account. All they need to do is submit a TRC, declaration and 6 months bank statement of the NRE account to get the refund.

      4. Broader Plan Options

        NRIs based in Kuwait can choose from a wider variety of health insurance plans in India than in the Middle Eastern country. This is because over 20 IRDAI-registered insurers offer multiple medical insurance plans in India, thereby allowing NRIs to make an informed decision of choosing the most suitable policy.
