Visa facilitation will be provided to patients who come to Turkey for healthcare services. Foreign patients who apply from abroad can obtain a visa with their companions within 48 hours.

Patients who want to receive treatment in Turkey will arrive in our country with a companion visa within 48 hours at the latest.

In recent years, healthcare tourism has shown significant development in Turkey, and among the preferred destinations for healthcare tourism worldwide. The high-quality healthcare services, experienced and expert healthcare personnel, modern facilities, and affordable prices offered in Turkey play a crucial role in attracting foreign patients to Turkey.

However, visa procedures, which are seen as an obstacle for healthcare tourism, cause the transactions of patients coming to Turkey to take a long time and become more complicated. For this reason, Turkey's government has signed a health visa protocol in cooperation with healthcare tourism companies and related institutions.

Within the scope of this protocol, visa facilitation will be provided to patients who come to Turkey for healthcare services, and foreign patients who apply from abroad can obtain a visa with their companions within 48 hours. Thus, visa procedures for patients who want to receive treatment in Turkey can be completed faster and more easily.

Healthcare tourism companies in Turkey can further develop the services they offer to foreign patients, thus strengthening Turkey's position in the healthcare tourism sector. This protocol will help healthcare tourism companies grow their businesses and further highlight Turkey's role in healthcare tourism.

Turkey's health visa protocol can be considered an important development for healthcare tourism. Thanks to this protocol, visa procedures for foreign patients who want to receive treatment in Turkey will be easier to complete, and the healthcare tourism sector will grow further, contributing to Turkey's economy.
