All visa applicants are required to hold the medical insurance, however there are only certain types that need to pay for the issuance of it as per the table below

Q. How much does the Saudi Arabian Medical Insurance cost?
The cost of the medical insurance required by the embassy when applying for a Saudi visa depends on the visa type, visa validity and other variants. Once we have received the application in hand and generate your application on the MOFA enjaz system, we will be able to provide you with pricing for the medical insurance.
Please note that the medical insurance fee of the most common pricing will be applied when you complete the order form based on the policy issuers at the time. The fee for this is normally £60.00 additional to the regular handling fees, however some prices can be significantly higher based on each individual applicant’s age, length of visit and other factors. In the event the pricing is higher than the standard pricing, one of our team members will contact you in order to collect the remaining payment providing the relevant documents.
Q. Can I use my own existing medical travel insurance for my Saudi visa application?
Even if you hold a valid travel insurance, you will still need to obtain medical insurance via the embassy. The medical insurance is connected to the visa itself and unless the payment is made the application cannot be submitted.
