The Indian citizen living in Qatar should buy term insurance for expats because of the following reasons:
Easy Purchase of the Policy: Buying a term plan from an Indian insurance company is easier because purchasing a term plan in India is simpler for an Indian citizen living in Qatar than buying a term life insurance in Qatar itself. Also, the CSR values released by IRDAI each year make it easy for insurance seekers to buy term plan from a reliable insurance provider.
Financial Protection: Term life insurance works by providing financial protection to your family throughout the policy term. This way if anything happens to you(the policyholder) during the policy term, your family will receive the basic sum assured to maintain their current lifestyle and fulfill their future goals.
Financial Debts and Obligations: Your family can use the payout received from a term plan to pay off any existing debts or loans that you might have taken. This amount can also be useful to pay for your family’s financial obligations like children’s fees and rent.
High Life Cover: Since the amount received from a term plan will be used by your family to take care of their financial needs it is important to buy a term plan with a life cover that is large enough to cover any unexpected expenses and medical emergencies in your absence. Term insurance for expats are designed with Indian citizen living in Qatar in mind and thus offer life cover up to Rs. 20 Crore.
Quick Claim Settlement: The claim settlement process for a term plan bought in India will be easier for your family than term life insurance in Qatar. It is because if the term plan was bought from an Indian insurer, your family will be able to visit the office to get their claims settled easily and not have to travel abroad just for the claim settlement.
Extra Discount: Insurance for expats is more expensive in foreign countries than level term life insurance rates. NRIs get an extra 5% discount when opting for the yearly premium payment mode, and an added 18% GST waiver upon purchasing term life insurance from Indian insurers, which sums up to 23% of total discount for NRIs.

GST Waiver: A GST Waiver of up to 18% can be availed in the premium payment that is made from a non-residential external bank supporting convertible currencies when buying term insurance for expats.
Claim Settlement Ratio: Claim settlement ratio tells us about the reliability of the term life insurance company. It is the ratio of all the registered claims within a financial year by a company to the claims settled by it. If suppose a company received a total of 100 claims and they settled 97 of them then the company’s CSR will be 97%. A CSR of 95% is considered good and the company has a better chance of settling your claims in times of need. The companies Tata AIA and Max Life have a CSR of 92.02% and 99.35% respectively.
Special Exit Option: Some term life insurance offers the special exit option which allows you to exit the plan at a specific point decided by the insurance company and receive all the premiums you paid to keep the plan active. This feature is very similar to the zero-cost term plans which also return all the premiums you paid towards the policy. Out of the plans listed above the Max Life Smart Secure Plus is a zero cost term plan.
Low Premium Rates: The premiums rates for Indian Citizen in Qatar offered by Indian insurers are almost 50% lower than the term life insurance in Qatar. This allows you to save on the overall premium and get a large life cover at affordable rates. Online platforms like Policybazaar lets you compare term plans online and buy the one suitable for you.
