Malaysia has flourished from receiving humble numbers of 643,000 health travellers in 2011, to up to 1.22 million in 2019 signifying trust in our healthcare services.

If you ask any of our visitors why they chose Malaysia, you will receive various answers from the quality of the medical practitioners and facilities to the general affordability of treatments and the ease of entry and communication.

These hallmarks have allowed this Southeast Asian Tiger to punch above its weight in the medical world and receive the #1 ranking for the Best Healthcare in the World category of the 2019 International Living Annual Global Retirement Index.

We have also been recognised as the ‘Destination of the Year’ by the International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) for three years in a row between 2015 to 2017, and most recently in 2020.
