Laravel Validation required this or that

I need to validate a request account_type if it is either ‘Personal’ or ‘Organizational’
So that i can validate other field by required if account_type,personal.Heres the code that i have tried.

        'account_type' => 'required|options:PERSONAL,ORGANIZATIONAL',
        'per_client_name' => 'required_if:account_type,PERSONAL|string',
        'per_street' => 'required_if:account_type,PERSONAL',
        'per_address' => 'required_if:account_type,PERSONAL',
        'org_name' => 'required_if:account_type,ORGANIZATIONAL',
        'org_type' => 'required_if:account_type,ORGANIZATIONAL',
        'org_cont_name' => 'required_if:account_type,ORGANIZATIONAL'

Method IlluminateValidationValidator::validateOptions does not exist. This is the error that i got.

Method 1

if you only have these 2 options (PERSONAL,ORGANIZATIONAL), then use in instead of options. Like this :

'account_type' => 'required|in:PERSONAL,ORGANIZATIONAL',

It works for me.
