Travel and Visa requirements

Any foreign national can get a medical visa to India as long as they have a genuine health concern that needs to be addressed. An applicant (patient) can have a maximum of two attendants who can accompany the patient into the country.However, their entry will require another form of visa called the Medical Attendant Visa. This visa will have the same validity of the medical visa. Typically, the validity of a medical / tourist visa is for a maximum of 1 year, multiple journey. This can be renewed again at the Foreign Regional Registration Office (FRRO). Please get in touch with us and we can help you with Visas.

Bangalore is a cosmopolitan city and English is widely spoken here. If you are from a non-English speaking country, we can arrange language translators for us to understand each other.
