Countries around the world are considering adapting their visa requirements in order to facilitate global medical travelers seeking affordable medical care and access to medical facilities and hospitals in their countries. Just recently, Japan reduced its country entry visa requirements in order to help promote medical tourism. Instead of single-entry 90-day visas, medical tourists may now opt for renewable-entry 6-month visas, perfect for those requiring one or more treatments or follow-ups to medical care. The new guidelines also allow visit status to be granted to accompanying family members or friends accompanying medical patients to these countries.
South Korea and Singapore have also previously eased visa travel restrictions and visa options to encourage medical travel, with great success. Southeast Asia is growing in popularity as a medical tourism destination with excellent and globally respected physicians, surgeons and facilities such as the Wooridul Spine Hospital in Seoul.
