Medical Tourism


Medical tourism has become a rapidly developing sector in Turkey: 700,000 people visited the country in 2017. In 2008, 75,000 people visited Turkey for medical tourism. In 10 years, this figure has increased tenfold. In 2018, the number of visitors approached one million. Many people come to Turkey because of the cost, quality, waiting period and opportunities in the healthcare sector. Turkey provides better quality treatment at lower costs compared to Europe, the United States and other Western countries. Some operations are 90 percent cheaper than in other countries.


In Turkey, the waiting time for patients was a maximum of two weeks, excluding transplantation, but in Western countries this process could reach 18 months. Visitors come to Turkey mainly from Europe, the Gulf States, Russia and the Turkic republics, and they usually choose Istanbul, the Mediterranean resort province of Antalya and the capital Ankara.


According to the International Journal of Medical Travel (IMTJ), Turkey ranks third in the field of medical tourism after the United States and South Korea. The goal is to receive two million visitors for health tourism by 2023.
