The treatment sector is an industry that has been a source of income for countries in the last few years. Our country, Iran, is no exception to this rule, and many people have entered Iran for treatment. We should not ignore the many advances that our country has in medical fields, which can be one of the reasons that have attracted many people from all over the world to Iran; On the other hand, treatment costs in Iran are relatively low compared to other countries, which is one of the influencing factors in choosing Iran to treat various diseases.

For this purpose, a visa called a health visa is issued to people who enter Iran for treatment, which we will discuss in this article.

The table below lists the types of non-immigrant visas along with their uses. To get additional information, please contact the representatives of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Medical Visa

A medical visa is a special type of visa that people who have a specific disease and the cost of treatment is very high in their home country or whose country is not equipped with equipment or science to treat the disease, apply for that visa.

For this purpose, after research and negotiation with the destination country (the country where they intend to be treated), they apply for a visa for that country. A medical visa is a type of visa that is issued for a short period of time.

Iran Medical Visa

A medical visa or T-visa is a form of visa issued to a patient for a specific period. The duration of this visa is usually 30 days but can vary depending on the type of disease. The issuance of a health visa is issued in a short time. To apply for a medical visa, the patient or a relative must apply for a visa through a company specializing in health tourism. Our recommendation is to consult with experienced tourism experts about this and get the necessary guidance.

Steps for obtaining a health visa

An IPD license is a type of license that a number of hospitals possess. In fact, the International Hospital Ward issues a letter of acceptance for the patient’s treatment. The letter of admission, known as the IPD, is written by the hospital for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran and mentions that a person with the stated specifications needs treatment at this hospital. Medical records and explanations about the illness are also added to the letter. The first requirement for admission of the patient is to have a hospital letter. In this way, the patient registers his application with one of the companies that are active in the field of health tourism. The company enters into negotiations with the hospital on behalf of the patient and receives the patient’s acceptance letter. The patient will take the letter to the Iranian embassy in his home country and in this way he will be issued a health visa.

The list of hospitals that issue an IPD letter and have admission to the international ward is as follows:

  • Tehran Jam Hospital
  • Tehran Heart Center
  • Shariati Hospital
  • Tehran Atieh Hospital
  • Erfan Hospital
  • Takht Jamshid Hospital in Karaj
  • Noor Hospital Karaj
  • Ghaem Hospital of Guilan
  • Aria Hospital Gilan
  • Shiraz Ordibehesht Hospital
  • Apadana Hospital in Ahvaz
  • Bu-Ali Hospital of Hamedan
  • Imam Reza Hospital Mashhad
  • Imam Ali Hospital in Kermanshah
  • Kerman Mehregan Hospital
  • Kowsar Hospital in Sanandaj
  • Tohid Hospital Sanandaj
  • Kermanshah Hakim Hospital

Obtaining an Airport Treatment Visa

In the past years, the applicant who had been applying for a health visa without intermediary of companies that were active in the field of health tourism could get his visa from one of the international airports we will mention below. The applicant will receive his invitation from one of the hospitals and receive his health visa when he arrives in Iran and at the airport and having the right letter. Of course, this method is not suggested. Because issuing this visa is one of the new policies that are being implemented in our country, you may make mistakes in the process and process of getting it, and ultimately your visa will not be accepted despite spending a lot of time and money. Contact our experts in Healing Tourism and get the necessary and accurate advice on issuance of a health visa.
