Medical VISA

In order to receive medical treatment in Germany, Austria or Switzerland, you may have to apply for a "visa for medical treatment". This visa is usually granted quickly and allows you, if necessary, to extend the stay permit.

In order to apply for a medical visa, you will need an invitation as well as a cost estimate and treatment schedule, which needs to be sent to the relevant German embassy or consulate in your home country issuing the medical visa. We are happy to support you in preparing all these documents. Our close contacts to the German Foreign Ministry (Auswärtiges Amt) can help in some cases.

When applying for a visa, you can list several accompanying persons as long as they are named in the invitation issued by the hospital. It is therefore very important that you inform us of the persons accompanying you if we shall support you with the visa process.

The documents required for a visa vary for different countries. More information is available from the German consulate in your home country and on the following websites that we have compiled for you:
