Visiting a doctor in Kuala Lumpur



Malaysia has a high standard of health care and there are public and private hospitals in the country. However, expats can only seek treatment at private hospitals and clinics. These are abundant in Kuala Lumpur. Most doctors and medical staff speak English.

Expats are advised to take out a health insurance policy as there is no welfare healthcare system in place for foreigners.
