What is Medical Tourism

Medical tourism is the process of traveling from your country of residence to the other for the purpose of receiving appropriate medical care. Usually, people and or patients travel from less-developed countries to developed nations in pursuit of the treatments not available in their homeland or sometime cost of treatment is more favorable without compromising the quality of care in the country of destination.
When going for a medical treatment, naturally patients / people tend to select a country with comparatively lower costs yet higher standards of treatment, accessibility, and timelines to visa regulations, and the distance from their home country to the country they want to travel to, bilingualism and the reputation of the health-care system in that country.
What really puts the word "tourism" in medical tourism concept is that people often stay in the foreign country during and even after the medical treatment. Travelers can thus take advantage of their visit by sightseeing, taking day trips or participating in any other traditional tourism activities. Hence the tourism and cultural status of a country contributes during the choice of a destination as well.
