Medical Tourism

Why India

Low cost of treatment is the leading factor encouraging many tourists to seek medical help. While other countries have elaborate processes to obtain a visa, India is constantly working towards making the process more streamlined and efficient, allowing more foreign medical tourists to enter the country. Foreigners can receive any medical treatment in India with the exception of organ transplants without a medical visa.


Advantages of medical treatment in India include reduced costs, the availability of latest medical technologies, and compliance on international quality standards, doctors trained in western countries including the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as English-speaking personnel, due to which you are less likely to face language barrier in India.


Most estimates found that treatment costs in India start at around one-tenth of the price of comparable treatment in the United States or the United Kingdom. The most popular treatments sought in India by medical tourists are alternative medicine, bone-marrow transplant, cardiac bypass, eye surgery, and hip replacement.

Ease of Travel

The government has removed visa restrictions on tourist visas that required a two-month gap between consecutive visits for people from Gulf countries. A visa-on-arrival scheme for tourists from select countries has been instituted which allows foreign nationals to stay in India for 30 days for medical reasons.
