India is one of the preferred choice of many patients in the world who come to our country for medical procedures. Going a step further, our Prime Minister Narendra Modi has recently announced that immediate medical visas will be given on arrival to patients and one attendant from SAARC countries. This news has received a positive feedback from major healthcare providers of the country. Earlier, patients were visiting India on tourism visas which needed to be changed if they were undergoing medical procedures. Now that medical visas are given to patients directly on arrival, their documentation work and hassles have drastically reduced, making it easier for them to concentrate on their treatments.
