Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health has approved the protocol for patients whose treatment requires travel outside the kingdom, Saudi Press Agency reported today.

Patients wishing to travel abroad for treatment at their own expense need to meet certain conditions set by the ministry. First, the patient must obtain an acceptance of treatment from a hospital or specialized center in a medically developed country.

Second, the patient’s case should be one that requires treatment abroad and cannot be dealt with in Saudi Arabia, according to a recent medical report approved by the ministry.
