How to See a Doctor in Israel

Getting sick or injured in a foreign country is not a pleasant experience, yet as in any country, tourists in Israel may find themselves in need of a doctor. Luckily, in Israel, there are state-of-the-art medical facilities and excellent medical care. While healthcare is universal for Israeli citizens, as a traveler, you will have to seek private medical care and pay to see a doctor in Israel. Before leaving for your trip, make sure you buy travel insurance (we recommend InsureMyTrip) and check your country’s recommendations for vaccines. Even if you are visiting on a tour, travel insurance is not included and it is always recommended to arrange it in advance in case of any emergency or medical situation that may arise.
