This includes countries where outbound health medical tourists go, including Russia and many European countries.

Historically most medical and health tourists are from Russia (the major source), Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, Poland, Latvia and Germany. Those from Ukraine, Latvia, Germany and Poland mostly go to spas.

Of these, Russia, Ukraine and Belarus remain banned, the other three are freely allowed in.
