The United Kingdom has some of the highest quality health care in the world. UK hospitals, doctors and medical research facilities have a global reputation for quality and state-of-the-art technology.

The UK Government is aware that the medical provisions in the UK may be more advanced or suitable for individuals from other countries. Therefore provisions are made for people to travel to the UK for the sole purpose of receiving medical treatment and care.

The Free Medical Visitor visa Eligibility Assessment is designed to instantly determine if you are eligible to apply for a UK Visitor visa. It uses criteria set by the UK Border Agency and is the most comprehensive and technologically advanced online Migration Assessment tool available.


To qualify under a Medical Visitor visa, applicants must satisfy the general requirements for a general Visitor visa and in addition show that their proposed treatment is for a set period of time. They must also provide evidence of their medical condition requiring treatment, the estimated costs of the treatment and that they can meet those costs.


This visa entitles holders to visit the UK for up to a maximum of six (6) months allowing them to undertake the required course of treatment and they may be allowed multiple entries during the six (6) month period.

Medical Visitors can receive private medical treatment and care in the UK .
