Ajman seeks to be a leading destination for medical tourism

Ajman, the capital of the Emirate of Ajman, is the fifth largest city in the UAE. Following the footsteps of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Ajman is on a mission to showcase its unique tourism potential, including that in the field of medical tourism. 

Last week, the Ajman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) received a delegation from the Kingdom of Thailand to discuss cooperation and investment in the fields of wellness, health care, and medical tourism. 

During the meeting, Salem Al Suwaidi, the Director General of ACCI, pointed out the diversity of tourist facilities operating in Ajman, including the availability of a wide range of distinguished hospitals and health centers. 

The meeting discussed opportunities in developing innovative medical tourism programs, exchanging knowledge in the field of health care, organizing joint activities to develop the skills of health personnel, and the necessity of exchanging modern therapeutic techniques.

India is a vital market for Ajman and is the second-largest international feeder for the emirate over the past three years, accounting for over 12 percent of total visitors.

Earlier in October, the Ajman Department of Tourism Development held roadshows in Bangalore, Mumbai, and Ahmedabad to attract more visitors to the Emirate and to entice opportunities in medical tourism. 

This led to a visit of distinguished doctors from India to Ajman, followed by the arrival of the first group of patients from Nigeria, with ADTD providing extensive logistical and visa support, as well as streamlining administrative procedures.
