Halal Medical Tourism market is estimated to reach $238 billion dollars in 2019, which is merely a small portion of the total $6.4 trillion dollars of Halal Products, projected also in 2019!
The word Halal in Arabic means what is allowed, lawful and permissible as ordained by God Almighty. Thus, Halal Tourism is providing services and facilities to address the specific needs of those who believe in the concept of halal such as Muslim travelers. Such needs include halal food, dry hotels (hotels that do not serve alcohol), separate males and females facilities as well as an overall family friendly environment.
