Indian medical visa validity

In November 2014, the Government of India introduced an online tourist Visa (e-Visa) for 43 countries. This was done to promote travel to India, as travelers no longer had to visit the embassy to get their visa. In 2015, India rolled out the e-Visa program to other major world countries. In April 2017, India retooled its e-Visa program, introducing a special visa subcategory for medical travelers.

At present, medical travelers from more than 160 countries can apply for a Medical e-Visa. Travelers who use the Medical e-Visa program apply, pay a fee online and receive their electronic visa online before traveling to India. Unlike the Tourist and Business e-Visas, medical travelers can enter the country up to Triple Entry with the e-Visa. The process has really simplified things for medical travelers who are seeking treatment in India.

The e-Visa is an official document permitting entry into and travel within India. Applicants will receive their medical visas via email, after filling the application form with the necessary information and once the online credit card payment is completed.

  • The Indian Medical e-Visa allows for Triple Entry into India (triple entry visa).
  • Despite the Indian Medical e-Visa being a triple entry visa, it is important to note that the Indian Medical e-Visa can be used a maximum of Triple Entry in a calendar year i.e. between January and December.
  • The Indian Medical e-Visa is valid for 60 days after arrival. You can enter India on any date within this period.
  • The visa holder can stay in the territory of the country for no more than 60 days Total.
  • The applicant should carry a copy of the Indian visa along with him/her at the time of travel.
  • The Indian Medical e-Visa is valid for entry through 26 designated Airports(i.e. Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Bagdogra, Bengaluru, Calicut, Chennai, Chandigarh, Cochin, Coimbatore, Delhi, Gaya, Goa, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Madurai, Mangalore, Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Tiruchirapalli, Trivandrum, Varanasi & Vishakhapatnam) and 5 designated seaports (i.e. Cochin, Goa, Mangalore, Mumbai, Chennai). However, travelers can exit from any of the authorized Immigration Check Posts (ICPs) in India.
  • The Indian Medical e-Visa is non-extendable.
  • Your passport should have at least six months validity from the date of arrival in India, and two blank pages.
  • Nationals of Yellow Fever affected countries must carry a yellow fever vaccination card at the time of arrival in India, otherwise they may be quarantined for 6 days upon arrival in India. See Yellow Fever countries
