The World Tourism Organization has stated that there were an “estimated 1.2 billion international tourist arrivals in 2015 throughout the world”. Your reasons for travel can include business, vacation, research, study abroad, and family visits.

Health conditions for travelers today are an important consideration.  Pre-existing medical conditions should be discussed, along with immunizations and known medical situations related to your travel destination.

We recommend coming in for a travel consultation at least one month prior to your departure date.
