Thinking of traveling to India for medical care? India offers the latest technological advances, experienced and expert physicians and surgeons and the very best in patient care, India has secured her place in the world as a premier medical travel destination.
Specializing in orthopedic, cardiac, organ transplant and plastic and cosmetic surgical procedures, India is also a leader in nuclear medicine, neurosurgery and cancer procedures. American medical travelers flock to India for such treatments because of the enormous savings to be had – nearly a tenth of the cost of procedures and surgeries in the U.S. It’s no wonder that affordable medical tourism in India is increasing every year.
Before you go, determine what you need to bring with you to world class Indian medical facilities like Adiva, a facility that offers women total care in fertility, birthing and neonatal care. Or the Madras Joint Replacement Center in Chennai, and the Artemis Health Institute in Gurgaon.
Contact your nearest Indian Embassy or consulate for information regarding travel documents. Most countries require a valid passport and some will also require a visa, granted by the country you’re visiting. Take photocopies of your passport and visa page just in case you lose your passport while in India. Tourists in India are usually granted up to a 6-month stay, but check Indian government websites for detailed information regarding documents depending on your country of origin.
Indian consulates in the U.S. are located in Washington DC, Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Houston. Don’t forget to read about customs restrictions or requirements for traveling through India. The key is to research, be informed, and enjoy your stay.
