Tourists go to Belarus not only to get acquainted with the culture, to learn more about the Second World War, but also to recover. Belarus has endless pine forests, lots of greenery everywhere, clean air and incredible landscapes on the lakes. And what else does a tired body and spirit need?
Any tourism can be considered medical in the most general definition, unless, of course, you are into pub-crawl.
Anyway, it's not recommended to joke with health, so let's talk about it.
Treatment of foreign nationals in Belarus
If you live in Belarus permanently, you have the right to receive medical care on an equal basis with Belarusian citizens. If you are temporarily or temporarily residing in the country, medical assistance is provided at your expense.
The Republic of Belarus has concluded agreements with some foreign states, which regulate the issues of emergency and scheduled medical care.
According to the international treaties of Belarus, citizens of the following CIS member states can receive medical care in Belarus free of charge:
- the Republic of Armenia;
- the Republic of Kazakhstan;
- the Kyrgyz Republic;
- the Republic of Moldova;
- the Republic of Tajikistan;
- the Republic of Uzbekistan;
Regardless of their legal status, citizens of one of these countries are provided with ambulance and emergency medical assistance in the event of sudden acute conditions and diseases that threaten the life of the patient and the health of others, accidents, poisonings, injuries, births and urgent conditions during pregnancy.
Once the threat to the patient's life has been eliminated and it is possible to transport the patient, medical assistance is provided on a fee basis.
