Healthcare facilities in major cities in Saudi Arabia are of a high standard.


Medical tourism numbers in

At most it gets a few hundred or low thousands.


Medical tourism numbers out

For certain procedures, it is common for Saudi Arabian nationals to obtain government approval and funding from the MOH for treatment outside Saudi Arabia. The United States and Germany are two of the most common destinations for treatment of Saudi Arabian nationals.


Medical tourism promotion

Saudi Arabia wants to become a destination for medical tourists rather than a supplier of patients to other countries.
