No medical check up is not required. If this is the first time you will renew your Iqama you will go into the process of BIOMETRICS wherein fingerprinting is through machine scanning. If you have previous criminal records before even for the last 20 years it will appear on your fingerprint. Why medical is much of your concern, are you having some problem in your health?

This is first time renewal, but even they did not asked for biometrics.are you sure biometrics is needed??
