In cooperation with the medical institutions in Germany, our company provides all the documents necessary to obtain a German medical visa (questionnaires and forms can be found in the relevant sections of our website).
- According to the new provisions on the issuance of medical visas, the special invitation from the clinic should reflect two things: that the clinic agrees to admit the patient on a certain date to conduct medical examination or treatment for a period of a certain number of days; that the advance prepayment has been made.
We can also arrange and send to you the German insurance policy for citizens of other countries who are traveling to Germany. This insurance is needed in order to obtain a visa.
The invitation - which is also required to obtain a visa - can be issued only after the receipt of the deposit on the account in Germany. The amount of the deposit is calculated by the accounting department of the clinic as the average cost value of the examination or treatment. In some cases, if a patient is planning an outpatient examination, clinics can accept a credit card payment upon arrival. However, if you pay by credit card, German banks charge a commission of up to 5%. Therefore, it is necessary to bear in mind that the payment amount will be higher than the one specified in the invoice.
You may also pay in cash at the clinic itself. But even if you have an open Schengen visa, you must make an advance payment, otherwise German hospitals will not admit a patient. The final invoice with all the costs - taking into account the deposit – is made by the clinics no later than six weeks from the date of discharge of the patient.
After receiving the calculations from the clinic, we add to the costs of medical services also the organizational expenses of our company in the amount of 15% of the cost of the examination or treatment, plus 19% VAT for non-medical expenses, as well as the costs of transportation transfers and work of translators after the fact. If after all the final calculations there will be extra money remaining from your deposit, this deposit balance will be refunded to any bank account you will provide.
We will be happy to answer all your questions by e-mail or by phone.
