The statement quoted the Academy Ozglik Habar as saying that those wishing to perform eye operations and medical procedures are at the forefront of those coming to Turkey for the purpose of medical tourism.

And she reported the arrival of other foreigners to perform hair transplants, cosmetic dentistry and other cosmetic operations, and test-tube babies or infertility.

The Turkish Academy indicated that the citizens of Germany, Russia, Iran, Britain and the Arab countries top the list of foreigners who visit Turkey most for medical tourism.

She noted that after the Corona epidemic, the number of people coming to Turkey from Saudi Arabia, the Middle East countries and the Turkish republics increased, with the aim of medical tourism as well.

She concluded by noting that Turkey aims to generate revenues of $2.5 billion from medical tourism by 2023.
