Your Healthcare Holiday Dollars go Farther in Thailand

Medical costs in the West are skyrocketing and patients are flocking to Asia to save, particularly to Thailand where outlays for treatment are generally five to ten times less than what they’d be in the US and Europe.

China Visa Requirements for Medical Tourists

For the purpose of visiting China as a medical tourist, you will be required to obtain a Tourist (L) Visa which will cover you for tourism, sightseeing, visits with friends or relatives, medical treatment, and other private purposes.  Normally, this type of visa allows 3-months stay from the date of entry. The validity of this type of visa is 90 days from the date of issue.

Those traveling for medical treatment must satisfy the same requirements as other applicants for tourist visas, but it is recommended that you consult with an official embassy or consulate to obtain the most up-to-date information prior to your travels.
