Evaluating Medical Tourism in India Swarna

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Tourisms that are tied to health spas or resort destinations with the primary aim of improving the physical wellbeing of the patient through dietary control, exercise and medical services is called medical tourism. Traditionally, medical tourists would seek for medical treatments that are unavailable in their own countries. The trend used to be movement from less developed countries to developed countries but the trend is changing.

Reason why people seek medical tourism

Medical tourism becomes a necessity for many patients who have conditions that cannot be treated in their home country due to lack of technology or medical expertise. Also, there are medical procedures that are by law not allowed in certain countries. For example, IVF cannot be carried out in Turkey because of legal restrictions and patients in such countries would need to travel to other countries.

International healthcare accreditation helps boost medical tourism

The requirements for any country to obtain International Healthcare Accreditation are diverse. The country would need to satisfy a level of quality for healthcare. IHCA organizations certify a wide range of healthcare programs such as hospitals, primary care centers, medical transport and ambulatory care services.

Medical tourism in India is a growing sector

Projections of the growth of the India’s medical tourism were expected to hit two billion dollars judging from her thirty percent annual growth. The greatest influx of medical tourists to India comes from the developed nations including Canada, Great Britain, Western Europe, Australia, Middle East and the United States.The city of Chennai has been nicknamed the heart of India’s medical tourism and it is known to get 150 international patients daily.

The major attraction to India medical tourism is low cost

The cost of medical treatment in India is greatly reduced and can be as low as one tenth of what the same surgery would cost in America or Britain. The procedure is carried out almost immediately and the medical facilities are world class and their doctors are highly specialized having received training from different parts of the world.

Language barrier is not always a problem in India

One of the considerations medical tourists always have in mind is the possibility of language barrier. Majority of India’s population speak English – though not all fluent – but it would be enough to hold a conversation with them. Also, a number of India medical tourist hospitals have hired translators for the comfort of patients.

Many healthcare procedures can be carried out in India

India is one of the few medical tourism destinations that have diversified so well to accommodate a whole lot of medical procedures. Medical procedures like cosmetics and plastic surgery, eye surgery, cardiac bypass, gynecology, bone marrow transplant and dentistry are easily carried out in India. There are about 18 hospitals in India that have been accredited by JCI.

Government initiatives have helped to improve India medical tourism

Government policies can make or mar the development of medical tourism in any country. That of India has been beneficial. One of such favorable policies is the idea of visa on arrival. Visa on arrival allows foreigners to stay in India for 30 days for any medical treatment.The government is also taking steps to bridge the infrastructural gap that is hindering the growth of the nation in medical tourism.

Medical tourists can fit recreation into their schedule

There are dedicated exhibition spaces for medical tourism, road shows and other cultural displays organized by the ministry of tourism to promote tourism in India. Medical tourists can easily fit into any of these.

A Short Review of Medical Tourism Destination Trends

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Medical tourism is not peculiar to any country as of now – may be in the past it used to be. Many countries are constantly developing their medical tourism potentials and some of them are already enjoying the huge benefit associated with doing so. India for example owes a huge amount of her GDP to medical tourism.

People take to medical tourism for many reasons

Majority of those who engage in medical tourism do so because of financial gains. People are always desirous of good medical care and if they can get this at a discount, they would not mind taking the plunge. Though others may have other motives but finance is always at the center because the rigors involved is usually tasking financially.

Some developing countries have invested heavily in medical tourism

Some developing countries like India and other Asian countries like Thailand have invested heavily in medical tourism infrastructural and intellectually. Today, people move from the developed nations to the developing nations to have a taste of their healthcare because treatment is usually cheaper there. Besides getting treated, it affords them the opportunity of relaxation in the form of tourism.

Policies prevent some procedures from being carried out in some countries

Some medical procedures are considered unethical by some countries, probably because of their religious affiliations. However, such procedures may be the hope to solving some of the emerging health challenges. One of those disputed medical procedure is the use of stem cells as possibility of organ replacement.

Stem cells are unspecialized cells

Most cells in the body are specialized, meaning that they can only perform specific functions. Stem cells on the other hand are a group of unspecialized cells and can be manipulated to specialize into any form. Stem cells are present throughout the body but their presence is dominant in fetus.

Stem cell research will advance medicine dramatically

The research into stem cells is still an ongoing procedure. Though its application has already commenced in some countries in small scale, it is believed that when it is developed fully in the nearest future, the course of disease treatment would be changed dramatically.

Stem cells can replace damaged tissues

Stem cells have the ability to specialize into any type of cell, therefore when it is implanted into the body it migrates to the area of the damaged tissue and replace it. Cells such as brain cells, neural cells in the spinal cord and optic nerves can be replaced when they are damaged by injecting the victim with stem cells. Lower animals like lizards whose cells are not highly specialized are able to go through regeneration, growing parts of their bodies when they are cut off.

Untreatable disease may find treatment in the future

The potential of stem cell is enormous and scientists are optimistic that with the current stem cells research directed at technology, in the nearest future, it may be possible to treat such diseases like diabetes and cancer which at the moment are not treated but managed. The furtherance of stem cell research is greatly inhibited by the ethical concerns associated with it.

Desperate victims will travel to countries with flexible medical laws

There are some desperate patients who have tried every possible medication for their diseases without success. The very idea that stem cell may provide a solution to their problem will make them travel, if the procedure is banned or not currently practiced in their country. Such disparity in local policies has also had an impact in medical tourism.

Details on Heart Treatment in Turkey

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Heart surgery is a very delicate form of surgery because the heart is the powerhouse of the body. All other forms of surgeries undertaken by medical tourists such as the very popular cosmetic surgery and the least popular bone marrow transplant are easily done in various facilities around the globe. When it comes to heart or cardiac surgery, only the best medical facilities can handle it.

Turkish hospitals have a high pool of cardiologists

Turkish hospitals are leading in the provision of high quality cardiovascular services and this is not unconnected with the large concentration of cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons they parade who are among the best in the world. Some of them are widely traveled and obtained their training from various hospitals in the West.

Various factors support the success of Turkish cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons

No surgeon would be successful if he is not aided by professionals who know their onions too. Besides the fact that Turkish hospitals are highly and efficiently equipped with modern medical facilities, the surgeons are also assisted by nurses of high quality who are highly skilled in medical care giving.

There are different kinds of heart surgeries

When a novice hears ‘heart surgery’, they probably would think they are all the same and require the same process to achieve it. That is not the case. Heart surgeries have a variety of subsets and the processes are often named after the specific part that is going to be worked on.

Different heart surgeries can be carried out in Turkish hospital

The processes that have been efficiently carried out in Turkish hospitals includes supporting the muscle to the heart in a process called cardiomyoplasty, assisting the left ventricle with devices, stem cell transplant, computer aided surgery otherwise known as robotic surgery, minimal invasive direct coronary artery bypass graft and off-pump coronary artery bypass graft.

Cardiology is a delicate practice

A bit like neurosurgery, cardiology is a practice that requires a lot of attention, care, diagnosis and testing. The procedure can be invasive or non-invasive and may require postoperative management and cardiac rehabilitation in some patients. The list of medical programs goes on and on.

Turkish hospitals can guarantee you high quality care

Before any surgery is carried out on you in Turkish hospital, you will have to prepare your mind for advanced diagnostic test. This is one of the pointers that would determine the kind of procedure you will have and is a very important step in order to give the patient the best.

Disease of the heart is one thing everyone must try to avoid

Diseases of the heart are numerous. Some occur in a stepwise manner, giving the victim enough time to seek medical help while others take the victim by surprise and are often fatal for example heart attack. It is paramount that everyone go for regular heart checks in a hospital with professionals who can decipher some of these heart problems at the early stage before they spiral out of control.

There are about eleven common heart diseases

The diseases that can affect a human being runs into thousands and the heart alone has eleven of them which includes valvular heart disease, carotid artery disease, pulmonary arterial hypertension, congenital heart disease, pregnancy and adult congenital cardiac patients, coronary artery disease, pleural effusion (fluid around lungs) hearth arrhythmia, peripheral arterial disease, hearth attack and heart failure.

Reasons to Consider Arm Lifting in Turkey

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Medical tourism has a history that runs into the medieval age– yes, that is how old the history of people traveling to seek healing is. In recent times however, the practice has metamorphosed beyond just going to some caves or shrines or take a bath in some river. It is more of a medical travel with the exception the patient would require they treat him or her like royalty.

Cost of treatment is driving the direction of medical treatment

One of the factors that influence the countries medical tourists would go to is the cost of treatment. Countries that offer procedures at a cheaper rate will naturally witness more influx of medical tourists than countries with expensive procedures. India is currently one of the world top medical tourism destinations and their success has been linked to lower cost of treatment when compared to other countries of the world.

Other limitations in home countries make people travel

Some countries have medical systems that are defective in equipment and therefore cannot effectively carry out certain medical procedures. Patients in such countries that need those procedures will have no other option that to try their hands on another country. There are some procedures which are forbidden to be carried out in some countries; therefore, patients requiring such services would look for an alternative country.

Turkish hospitals have the best brains in surgery

When it comes to surgery, Turkey really stands out because most of their surgeons have been trained in various countries of the world and have efficiently impacted their knowledge on the home based doctors. The Turkish government is also not relenting in boosting their medical tourism. The government of Turkey has over the years invested so much money to erect befitting edifice and import ultramodern medical equipment.

The challenge Turkey is facing with growing her medical tourism

Like every other country in recent times that wants to grow her medical tourism, Turkey has to try to ‘wrestle’ medical tourists from the already established countries that play host to huge amount of medical tourists annually. Breaking into such saturated market as a competitor is not an easy task especially when you have no remarkable timeline success story to use as a bait to lure medical tourists.

Arm lifting has become a necessary procedure for many people

The uneven shape of the upper arm of some people has become a source of worry and social stigma. This usually results from accumulation of fat. Exercise alone or being on diet may not be enough to get rid of the excess fat which is why brachioplasty has become a necessary procedure for many to get back to shape.

Arm lifting is successfully carried out in Turkey

Arm lift is a medical procedure that involves correcting uneven large or droopy upper arm. This medical procedure is also termed brachioplasty. How this procedure will be carried out will vary from one individual to the other depending on the amount of excess fat and the skin on the individual’s body.

Arm lift can be done in various ways

How an arm lift may be done in one patient may vary remarkably to how the procedure would be carried out in another individual. Arm lift may involve only liposuction for one individual. For another, it may be the combination of liposuction and limited incisions concealed in the armpit or cuts that extends down the inner axis of the upper arm.

Prospects of Breast Augmentation in Turkey

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

One of the evidence of old age in women is that their breast begins to sag but there are a few young women that are naturally born with sagging breasts. When a woman’s breast begins to sag, they lose their aesthetics. To restore what has been lost, a woman may need to have breast surgery also called mammoplasty.

There are different factors that can make the breast sag

A sagging breast may be genetically connected especially if the girl, in here teen, is faced with such sag. Women are also prone to have their breast begin to sag from suckling. A woman that has given birth may notice that her breasts have lost their firmness after weaning her baby. Athletes are also at the risk of losing the shape of their breasts because of their tight fitting clothes.

Breast enlargement will let you get your dream breast

Maybe your breast is not the shape and size you want it to be or you have lost tremendous amount of weight which caused a distortion in the size of your breast. You need not worry anymore because with breast augmentation, your breast can be restored to its vigor or made to the shape and size you want it.

Breast augmentation techniques differ

Breast surgeons in Turkey will work with you to determine the best technique that will get your breast to the proportion that will suit your body frame. If the right technique is used, the result will be a fuller breast that looks next to natural but a wrong technique will only make it probably look worse than it was before the surgery.

Breast augmentation is used to achieve more than one purpose

Generally, those that go for breast augmentation usually seek to make their breast larger. However, you could request that only the shape of the breast be changed while it maintains its original size. You could also request the orientation of the nipples be adjusted. No matter how you want it, breast augmentation will get you there.

Breast implant is made through a small incision

Surgeons achieve breast augmentation by making a small incision on the side of the breast through which the implant is inserted into the breast, under your breast tissue, making it look natural like it is a part of your breast.

Private consultations are done before the surgery

Before the surgery is done, you will need to undergo private consultation with the surgeon in the facility you chose. During the consultation, the surgeon will tell you how breast augmentation is done. This is also the time in which you make your specifications known to the surgeon. Possibly, a 3D simulation would be done to demonstrate to you how the expected result would look like.

There are a variety of options to choose from in breast augmentation

A number of factors have to be agreed upon before mammoplasty is carried out. Some of these factors are; the size of the implant, choice of material of the implant (silicone or saline), round or teardrop, the site the incision would be made and the implant placement. Breast augmentation surgeons in Turkey would explain the odds that go with each choice vividly.

Silicone implant is preferred to saline implant

Silicone implants are made of silicone rubber filled with silicone gel. Silicone implants tend to last longer than saline implants which are made of rubber filled with normal saline. Silicone leaks are also less likely because of the higher viscosity compared to saline.

Popularity of Dental Surgery in Turkey

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Medical tourism is no longer limited to a few countries. The tentacles of the practice of traveling for healing have spread to different parts of the world. To many countries that are now medical tourist hubs, the practice has greatly affected their revenue and this has been a tremendous boost to the economies of developing countries that are into the practice.

Turkey is an emerging medical tourism hub

The success of most emerging medical tourism countries is because of the increasing cost of treatment in the Western or developed countries. Some of the emerging nations are offering same treatments at a competitive price which is giving medical tourists a reason to travel to seek cheaper treatments. Turkey has been doing this effectively in various fields especially dentistry.

The success of Turkey in dentistry has come a long way

In 2010, it was on record as reported my different research findings that Turkey had eighty percent of medical tourists seeking dental care as their destination. Like earlier mentioned, the reason for this may not be unconnected with the cheaper dental care offered by Turkey compared to several other medical tourists’ countries especially Europe and North America.

Turkey has accredited facilities for dental care

There are other factors that are considered by medical tourists when considering their next destination for a particular treatment and one of them is the accreditation status of the facilities of the country they intend putting their money. Accreditation is a way of building trust and a form of guarantee that the facility knows what they are doing.

Accreditation also affects the decision of insurance companies

In countries where it is compulsory to have an insurance cover before any medical procedure would be carried out on you, insurance covers would most often be limited to those hospitals that have been duly accredited. Insurance companies may not cover claims when procedures are carried out in hospitals that are not accredited.

The quality of dental care in Turkey is unprecedented

Medical tourists going for dental procedures in Turkey are sure of quality treatment by well-trained health care professionals. The government of Turkey is also investing in the procurement of ultramodern equipment that makes dental processes safer and more efficient.

Turkey may need to have medical tourist assistance

Though tourists are provided with some sort of assistance but with the growing number of medical tourists particularly those seeking dental care, Turkey may need to further explore the sector of travel assistance to medical tourists. Travel assistance will make the process more hassle free and further encourage medical tourists from around the globe to travel to Turkey.

The growth of Turkey as a major medical tourism destination has other contributing factors

There are several other factors that encourage medical tourists to travel to Turkey besides the high class equipment and the presence of professional healthcare givers. One of such factors is that certain procedures – which are not common – can be carried out in Turkey. Some of those procedures include infertility treatment, cosmetic surgeries and thermal tourism.

Turkish medical tourism is not practiced in isolation

A number of various other agencies are in collaboration with Turkish medical tourism section which has contributed in making it a success. One of those partnership is from her aviation sector which has made it easy for medical tourists to enter the country. Turkey is also in close collaboration with her neighbors.

Different dental processes can be achieved in Turkey

Dental processes encompass different procedures such as dental filling, dental bridge, and dental removal and so on. The dentists will know which is best for you.

Difference Between Liposuction and Slim Lipo Liposuction

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

There are different ways in which excess fat can be removed from the human body. Irrespective of the technique used, they are all called liposuction. The process of liposuction is one of the procedures that is ready available in Turkey.The success that has been recorded in Turkey liposuction procedure is unprecedented.

Traditional liposuction causes trauma on the tissue

Research has shown that using the traditional means for liposuction can bring about discomfort resulting trauma on the skin tissue. This is more prominent during the recovery stage of the procedure. Slimlipo will give you the benefits of the traditional liposuction but without the problems that plague the traditional method.

Slimlipo can be used without the need for anesthesia

One of the setback of traditional liposuction is that anesthesia has to be employed before commencement of the surgery. The downtime is also lower for slim lipo. An FDA approved laser is used to turn the fats in the region you desire (it could be the thigh, the stomach or the buttocks) into liquid form.

Liposuction is not used only for fat removal

Slimlipo or laser liposuction can also be applied to rejuvenate certain parts of the body. When we grow older, there is a tendency that certain parts of the body which used to be smooth will gradually become wrinkled. Laser liposuction can be used to restore fats to the area till they have been rejuvenated.

Laser liposuction is less invasive

The reason for its less invasiveness when compared to traditional liposuction is because it uses a body-sculpting system. The gain of this is that only a localized anesthesia would be required just before the commencement of the procedure. Another benefit of this procedure is that it leads to minimal recovery time.

Skin sagging can be minimized using slimlipo

The problem with losing an incredible amount of fat suddenly is that the skin around the areas where the fat has been lost will begin to sag. In addition to removing unwanted fats, it has been shown that slimlipo can stand in the way of such sagging of the skin giving a smooth evenly colored skin in the end.

Slimlipo is ideals for different body parts

What makes slimlipo more interesting is that it can be used on several parts of the body such as the thigh, stomach, hips, buttocks, neckline, abdomen, chest of males, upper arm and so on, slim lipo liposuction is suited for any age but it works better on younger age brackets whose skin as still very elastic.

Slimlipo has many benefits over the alternative liposuction

Slimlipo involves the use of two different laser light wavelengths which is not the case with other forms of liposuction. This gives the laser increased specificity thereby allowing more fats to be removed at a faster rate. Slimlipo utilizes continuous wave technology which limits skin burns risk.

Slimlipo is an outpatient procedure

Slimlipo being an outpatient procedure means that it does not have to be carried out in the hospital. The time for the procedure will vary depending on different factors but the average time is put at between one and three hours. The lasers are inserted through tiny incisions which will leave no scaring when they heal.

Recovery time for slimlipo procedure is short

Because of the minimal scaring and bruising, the recovery rate is very fast and can be seen as soon as the swelling begins to subside. There have been reported cases of people who do slimlipo today and go to work the next day to show you how fast the recovery can be.

Rapid Growth in Medical Tourism

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Medical tourism is no longer a new practice and most of the participating countries are already reaping the dividend in terms of economic boost. There is also cultural intrusion and the striving to remain better so they do not go out of business. In all, the practice of medical tourism especially with growing competition among nations has helped to bring better and cheaper healthcare to patients.

India is one of the top medical tourism destinations in the world

The tide in medial tourism has seen a shift over the centuries. In the past, patients would only seek out treatment in developed countries. It is surprising now that patients from developed countries are also scampering to seek for medical treatment in developing countries. The reason behind this is hinged on a number of factors which will be talked about later in this article.

Travelers experience hiccups in obtaining visa

The major setback that travelers would report is the challenge of obtaining a visa. This challenge is becoming slimmer in recent times. The number of visa dished out to medical tourists has witnessed a huge leap which is a demonstration of how liberal the visa administration has become. This liberalization was particularly evident in 2014.

There has been increase in the number of visa year on year

Between 2014 and 2015, the number of visa given out was almost doubled. For example, 75,671 visas were given out in 2014 but the number grew tremendously to 1,340,344 which is almost an eighty percent increase. As of the beginning of 2015, the number of issued medical tourism visas had already surpassed the record of 2014.

The majority of India bound patients come from a few countries

Certain countries have been pinpointed to top the chart as the majority when it comes to seeking medical treatment in India. A row call showed that the maximum patients to India came from Nigeria, Oman, Bangladesh, Iran and Afghanistan. The visitors usually come with those that will attend to them which were mostly a family member.

There are a number of reasons that are driving medical tourists to India

No doubt, it is normal for many to think that the reason why majority of people are heading to India to seek medical attention is because of top quality experts. This is not the only reason. A survey showed that most of the inbound medical tourists to India are driven by reduced cost of medical treatment followed by excellent facility.

India tourism minister is working tirelessly to support medical tourism

The reason why the growth of medical tourism in some countries has remained stunted is because of lack of support. This is not the case in India. The India tourism ministry is doing all it can to lend a hand to the tourism ministry. One of the ways this has been done is by incorporating the National Medical and Wellness Tourism Board.

National Medical and Wellness Tourism Board has the role of promoting medical tourism in India

In a speech by the Union minister, he was quoted as saying that the board was constituted to provide institutional framework that will champion the promotion of the different medical processes offered in India such as yoga, homeopathy, Siddha, Ayurveda and Unani.

Analyzing the Temporary Visa to Australia for Medical Tourism

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

For a number of reasons, patients are willing to move out of their countries to several other countries for medical tourism. The practice helps foreign nationals to obtain medical treatment in areas that are non-existent or defective in their country of origin or residence. Different countries offer medical tourism now and Australia is one of them.

Temporary visa to Australia makes it easy for medical tourists to come in

Countries that witness higher number of inbound medical tourists are those that have a way of simplifying the visa application system for the medical tourists. Australia has a Medical Treatment Visa Subclass 602, which makes the entry of medical tourists into Australia simplified and allows medical tourist gain access to the robust healthcare industry in the country.

Different category of people can apply for the visa

The medical treatment visa is available for those seeking treatment or those who would want to consult a doctor. Those willing to donate an organ or work as an attendee to someone already undergoing medical treatment are also welcomed to take up the visa. However, there is a restriction placed on those seeking surrogacy.

The number of inbound medical tourists to Australia cannot be compared to that of Asia

There are more countries in Asia that are thriving in medical tourism compared to Australia. India, Thailand and Malaysia for example have highly developed medical tourism potentials and a part of their national GDP is from the revenue realized from the practice. Competing with Asian countries is also difficult because they provide the lowest cost for treatment. The only advantage Australia has which can be used to lure more patients is high quality healthcare.

Australia sees more visitors from the United States

Every country that practice medical tourism usually has countries (sometimes neighboring countries) that make up majority of their inbound medical tourists. For Australia, majority of travelers that seek medical treatment come from New Zealand, United States and United Kingdom.

Australia can become a medical tourism hub if the right steps are taken

The structures that can stand Australia out as a medical tourism destination are already on ground and the facilities are top notch. What they need to become a key figure in the world is the right reforms. A good look at the countries that have made a name for themselves in the medical tourism sector will show that such countries have made tremendous reforms in their visa policies.

The facilities and immigration procedures in Australia is similar to those in the Asian countries

The immigration procedures in Australia are definitely not the problem because it can be compared to those of other countries in Asia. The medical application of medical tourists is being managed by the Australian immigration.

Several doctors migrate to Australia annually to serve in the country

Nothing gives medical practitioners joy like an environment that makes their practice easier and helps to hone their skills. This accounts for the reason why many doctors on annual basis would migrate to Australia to live out their medical practice. It is not hard to see that the high quality of healthcare delivery is the primary reason why it is majorly citizens of developed countries that make them their destination point.

Australia needs a robust promotion to get to the limelight

Like a new brand coming into the market, the Australia medical tourism sector will require a robust promotion strategy to get her to the spotlight. This is already the plan of the sector administrators who are currently working on coordination and networking.

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The government of Australia is mostly at the heart of their medical practice, urging them to provide best healthcare services to both the citizens and the visitors. Because of the increasing number of people to be cared for (which can be attributed to influx of medical tourists), there is a shortage in skilled nurses and doctors.

It is easy for international medical practitioners to work in Australia

Unlike in the United States and some other developed countries where it takes a stretch neck breaking documentation and visa modification before you can work, that of Australia is relatively easy. A step further, health immigrants are offered English communication aid by the Australian immigration and will help them adapt to the working environment.

There are more foreign healthcare providers in Australia than indigenes

A news report some time ago revealed that out of the over seventy thousand medical practitioners that are domicile in Australia, only 47.3 percent were born in Australia. A larger fraction of the practicing immigrants who entered legally into the country are from South East Asia and Asia.

Foreign medical practitioners fill the shortage in the health sector

There is a heavy reliance of Australia on doctors and nurses from developing countries such as Zimbabwe, India and Nepal to fill the gap in her health sector. Currently, Australia has the highest number of medical practitioners not born in Australia compared to other nations of the world. One of the reasons for this may be because Australia immigration allows doctors and nurses to apply for skilled visas.

Australian visa can be easily obtained if you have what it takes

There are three class of visas a medical professional can apply to and they are; Australia Skilled Nominated or Sponsored (Subclass 489), Employer Nomination Scheme and Australia Skilled Independent Visa (Subclass 189). The qualities that can boost your chance of getting the visa are strong educational background, test of English, requisite skill and a few other immigration documents.

There are more visa programs for nurses than doctors

Foreign nurses would tend to take advantage of the myriads of visa programs they are for nurses to make their entry into the country easier. The available visa programs for nurses are; working holidays, Enhancement of skills, employer nomination scheme, temporary business visa, occupational trainee visa, general skilled migration, business visa, and regional sponsored migration scheme.

The tourism potentials of Australia is one of the factors that makes it attractive to foreign medical practitioners

Australia is often nicknamed as the kangaroo land because of the large amount of kangaroos in the country. Many foreign health practitioners that come into the country do so not only to practice but also to enjoy the serene environment and have a closer look at natural artifacts that are abundant in Australia. There are wildlife that are only peculiar to Australia and cannot be found in any other region of the world.

Any of the visa options will get you into Australia

Aspiring professionals can find their way into Australia using any of the available visa programs as mentioned earlier. The Australian immigration does not entertain bias and gives out visa only on merit. The individual will have to go through a point based test to check their eligibility after lodging a formal application. Based on the result of your test and personal assessment, the Australian immigration will decide whether to hand you the visa or not.
