Recently, I renewed my daughter’s civil id and I found out that the Jabriya health insurance office, where I usually get the health insurance for my family, as a requirement for renewing the civil id is already closed.
The building security guy who was present that time told me that I have to do it online.
So, how can you apply for health insurance online for renewing your civil id?
1. Visit the online insurance system website [here]
2. Create an account (use your civil id if you are renewing for your dependents and not theirs)
3. Once logged in, select the necessary type of residence. Mine is for my daughter who’s 4-years-old
4. Select the insurance status, add the civil id of your dependent, fill out the rest of the required field.
5. Finally, pay the amount, print the receipt and include it on your civil id renewal documents
Note: Your passport should be valid for MORETHAN 1 years. Mine was 1 year and 1 day when I applied and I have to go to the computer section to “cancel” the note, so I could get the visa.
Once done you will receive an SMS and a link where you can confirm if whether the details are all correct. And probably this where you can do all the corrections if needed, without the need to visit the immigration office again.
