UK Medical Visit visas are often issued to individuals who wish to visit the UK for medical treatment. In the past, the UK was a highly respected destination for medical Visitors. UK was an accepted leader in medical fields from IVF to plastic surgery.

Today, fewer people visit the UK for medical treatment due to cheaper alternatives. However, it is still important to note that a Medical Visitor visa can only be granted in certain cases. In order that a visa be granted for medical treatment, the applicant must not have a terminal illness and the treatment concerned must be private.

A medical visa is granted for six months at a time and is renewable for the duration of the treatment. Once again the grant can either be for a single entry, or for multiple entries for those people who wish to continue their treatment as an outpatient, only flying into the UK for appointments.
