Medical tourism

06.08.2014

Like other countries, Latvia also has health care providers offering health care services to medical tourists. One of the requirements for medical tourism service providers is registration in the Registry of Medical Institutions. Such registration ensures that medical institution is working in compliance with legislation of the Republic of Latvia and is duly supervised by the Health Inspectorate.

Health Inspectorate maintains a database of health care providers registered as health care tourism service providers. Health care providers are added to the database of medical tourism service providers if they have been registered in the Registry of Medical Institutions for at least 3 years and if Health Inspectorate has had positive compliance check giving assurance that the service provider meets the requirements set out in the legislation of the Republic of Latvia.
