This nonsense needs to be stopped. All those going must get clearance from authorities that checks that they have paid taxes. No tax- No clearance.
BD also needs to place a punitive tax on medical tourist and channel tax receipts in to our public health infastructure.
BD also needs to introduce absolue quota on medical tourists that reduces every year to create the impetus for BD private sector and also foreign medical institutions to set up in BD itself.
BD should consider this an absolute policy and financial disaster.
Only in the healthcare sector I believe we should encourage fair competition in the region.
With people's lives at stake, I would not like to put unnecessary impediments in the way.
Secondly, without competition our hospitals will not improve.
The problem of cash outflow will remedy itself automatically - no sick person wants to pay extra for flights and hotel if they can get decent healthcare locally. Local hospitals are losing customers so will fill the gap eventually.
