“A medical category visa may be issued with the following conditions:

a. The Indian Missions/Posts abroad may scrutinize the medical documents very

carefully and satisfy themselves about the bonafide purpose for which medical

treatment visa is being requested.

b. Mission may satisfy that the applicant has sought preliminary medical advice

from his country of origin/country of residence and he has been advised to go

for specialized medical treatment.

In case the foreign national desires to go for treatment under the Indian system of

Medicines, his case may also be considered.

c. This type of visa should be granted for seeking medical attendance only in

reputed / recognized specialized hospitals/ treatment centers in the country.

Although non exhaustive, following illustrative list of ailments would be of

primary consideration; serious ailments like neuro-surgery; ophthalmic disorders;

heart related problems; reneal disorders; organ transplantations; plastic surgery;
