India is hailed as the “Pharmacy of the World” because of its booming pharmaceutical industry in India. India also has a world-class medical facility that has been proven in the Covid-19 period. India managed 1.4 billion people during covid; also, India developed its own indigenous vaccine and exported it to South Asia and African countries.

Many African and South Asian countries’ citizens visit India for treatment purposes. And to make it easy for them to get an Indian visa, India offers Indian Medical Visa. Today We’ll be discussing the Indian medical visa, its requirements, and its process.

Features Of Indian Medical Visa:

  1. Indian Medical Visa holders can stay upto 60 days in India.
  2. You can enter three times during the validity period of 60 days. However, you can apply for an eVisa if more than three visits are required.
  3. You can apply for a medical visa three times a year.
  4. You can enter India by 28 airports and five seaports.
