Travelling with confidence is important to you

Like you, we love travel. Travellers have trusted our experience in travel health to give them peace of mind, up-to-date health information, and a safety net away from home since 1960.

Whether you’re taking a round-the-world trip or just spending a few days abroad, your IAMAT membership helps you prevent illness, heal, and be healthy.

How IAMAT membership works

IAMAT members get travel health information and exclusive access to our international network of trusted English-speaking doctors.

IAMAT is a non-profit organization linking travellers directly to healthcare providers vetted by us. If you need medical assistance, present your membership card to an IAMAT-affiliated doctor.  IAMAT members can expect to pay up to a maximum of US $100 for the first regular office consultation with a private practice doctor. These consultation rates do not apply to hospitals and clinics, which charge IAMAT members their standard consultation fees. Our doctors will help you navigate the local healthcare system and can refer you to a specialist or report back to your own doctor if needed.

We are not an insurance company. Members who seek medical care from one of our reputable doctors may choose to file a claim and get reimbursed by their travel insurance provider after their trip.
