Mexico is emerging as one of the most favored destinations for medical tourism due to quality healthcare facilities and medical providers, state-of-the art recovery centers and the cost effectiveness of healthcare.
Mexico’s proximity to the United States and Canada has contributed to the large number of medical tourists received in the country. People who travel to Mexico for medical treatment enjoy the benefit of receiving quality care at extremely affordable costs. The government estimates the number of medical tourists entering the country to reach 650,000 by the year 2020.
Whether a visa is required to enter the political territory of Mexico is dependent on the nationality, country of residence and the purpose of travel. Visa for Mexico can be obtained for a maximum of 180 days. Citizens of countries that do require a visa to enter Mexico can obtain it from the Mexican consulate in their respective countries. It is advisable to contact an embassy, consulate, or similar expert in visa requirements prior to traveling for your care.
