Medical tourism forms available

Healthcare facilities offering medical tourism services have until June 1 to register their services, according to the Ministry of Health.

Under revisions to the Health Practice Law made last year, any facility providing inpatient and ambulatory medical and surgical services to patients who have traveled to the Cayman Islands for the purpose of obtaining healthcare must submit a tourism facility application form by June 1.

Under the law, it is an offense to operate a medical tourism facility without a designation issued by Cabinet.

Medical tourism providers who offer these services in the future can access the forms at their convenience, according to a ministry statement.

Application forms are available at the Ministry of Health’s website.
