KIMA and IMTAA signed the Memorandum
South Korean clinics play a key role for the next CIS regions: The Russian Far East, Eastern Siberia, and Kazakhstan. For example, 25 000 Russians visited in the South Korea Republic for medical care in 2016.
In fact, the government of South Korea spent the equivalent of $4 million dollars per year to promote medical tourism in 2009 and goes to supporting Korean clinics strong. Now Korean speakers in their presentations prefer to compare their medical performance indicators with famous US clinics like the Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Cleveland Clinic.
South Korea’s government this year announced plans to further encourage medical tourism, including a help center providing legal support to foreign patients unhappy with their treatment, and relaxed visa requirements for medical tourists. The Korea Tourism Organization is making ambitious forecasts for the sector: it projects that the animal number of medical tourists will rise from 399,000 last year to 998,000 in 2020.
