Foreign nationals seeking to visit Japan for the purpose of receiving medical services require a range of support, starting from before their visit and extending until after they return home, including the exchange of medical information and the arrangement of interpretation, transportation, and accommodation services.
Moreover, problems may arise due to cultural differences.
However, with some exceptions, it is difficult for medical institutions to have in-house all the resources needed to accept inbound patients.
There are medical travel assistance companies that support the acceptance of inbound medical travelers by medical institutions by serving as a bridge between the two parties, but the forms of assistance provided by these companies differ greatly by organization. In fact, there are some that do not meet the quality standards necessary for the assistance services.
In order to establish an environment where inbound medical travelers can receive medical services in Japan with peace of mind and the accepting medical institutions can provide them with appropriate medical services, it is necessary to develop medical travel assistance companies that can provide high-quality assistance services and help the qualified companies to become widely recognized both within and outside the country.
Based on this belief, MEJ launched the Accredited Medical Travel Assistance Company (AMTAC) system in 2015.
Also, with the aim of further promoting inbound medical care and strengthening its soundness, increasing the number of inbound medical travelers and medical institutions, and promoting acceptance of inbound medical travelers through AMTAC, it has been decided that, after investigation, a company that does not meet some of the standards for AMTAC certification but that is considered to offer a high level of service, will: in the form of a limited 3 year certification, be certified as an interim "Accredited Medical Travel Assistance Company".
The examination will be made as follows and the examination period is about one month.
Applicants need to pay the examination fees.
* MEJ will not return fees for any reason once they have been paid.

MEJ gives AMTAC accreditation based on the guidelines set by the government’s Medical Globalization Task Force.
