Iran is offering itself as an affordable destination in medical tourism

Published on : Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Concerning medical tourism, Iran is offering itself as cheaper destination compared to other countries, to get over the debilitating impact of US-led sanctions on its stronghold of oil trade.


The country is thinking of easing visa requirements for China and plans a major push in India to project itself as a reliable and inexpensive destination for medical treatment, including transplantation of organs.


Iran is already a go-to destination, especially for eye and plastic surgeries for people from Iraq, Central Asia and Oman.


On the general safety factor, Iran ranks with the UK making it preferred for general tourists. However, except for the Shia population, Iran holds few charms for other Indian tourists who prefer European and South East Asian destinations. In the recent past, Iran has been ranked by Bloomberg as among the “top 30” most efficient healthcare systems of the world.


The Iranian government expects that medical and general tourism can fetch $20 billion annually and help relieve the pressure on its exchequer after US President Donald Trump canceled the Obama-era Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and instead announced a fresh round of sanctions.


Iran also offers naturopathy with its bunch of hot water springs, mineral water fountains and sweet and sour water lakes for treating several diseases at low cost and without any side effects. Iran has over 850 government and private hospitals with high quality standards which can provide best medical treatments in various disciplines.
