  2. Consultation with the hospital: Reach out to us via WhatsApp – https://wa.me/919818560909 , We will guide you through the process and provide information on the required medical documents and the visa application process.
  3. Medical records and referral: Collect your medical records, including diagnostic reports, test results, and consultation notes, from your home country. It’s also helpful to have a referral or recommendation letter from your local doctor or specialist describing your medical condition and the need for treatment abroad.
  4. Obtain a medical visa: Visit the official website of the Indian Embassy or Consulate in your home country to understand the specific requirements and procedures for obtaining a medical visa. Complete the visa application form, gather the required documents (including the hospital’s invitation letter, medical records, and passport-sized photographs), and submit the application to the designated visa processing center or embassy/consulate.
  5. Await visa approval: The visa processing time can vary depending on your home country and the workload of the visa processing center. It’s advisable to apply for the visa well in advance of your planned travel dates to allow sufficient time for processing.
  6. Travel arrangements: Once your medical visa is approved, make travel arrangements, including booking flights, accommodation, and arranging for transportation from the airport to your accommodation and the hospital. You may seek assistance from the hospital’s international patient department or a medical travel facilitator who can help you with these arrangements.

It’s important to note that the visa process may vary depending on your nationality and the specific requirements of the Indian government. It’s recommended to visit the official website of the Indian Embassy or Consulate in your country or contact them directly for accurate and up-to-date information regarding the visa application process.
