India Medical Visa

Medical visas are provided to those seeing long-term medical treatment in India at recognized and specialized hospitals, and treatment centers. The treatment should be significant in nature, such as neurosurgery, heart surgery, organ transplant, joint replacement, gene therapy, and plastic surgery. Up to two Medical Attendant visas will be issued for people to accompany the patient. If you’re only undergoing short-term treatment of up to 60 days, you can apply for a e-Medical visa.

A Doctor accompanying a Patient on Medical Visa, will also be granted a Medical Attendant Visa.

The validity of the Medical Attendant Visa will be the same as the Medical Visa of the Patient.

Medical Attendant Visa will have the same validity as the Medical Visa of the patient to be attended to in India.

Up to 2 attendants who are blood relatives of the patient are allowed to accompany the patient for treatment in India.

The initial duration of Medical Visa is up to 1 year OR the duration of the treatment, whichever is less. The Visa will be valid for a maximum of 3 entries during the year.
