India plans to restart Tourist Visas soon
The union health minister said that the advancements in India’s healthcare facilities have led to a spike of medical tourism in India.
India has started issuing medical visas and is planning to soon restart E-Tourist Visas, Union health minister Harsh Vardhan said on Thursday. The move is in a bid to boost medical tourism in India that remained hard hit due to the covid-19 pandemic.
The union health minister said that the advancements in India’s healthcare facilities have led to a spike in medical tourism in India. “India has always been a popular tourist destination, but over the last few years, it has also emerged as a leading destination for medical tourism. Advancements in our vast and vibrant healthcare industry have made it comparable with the best in the world,” said Harsh Vardhan.
“Our education system that has been producing world-class doctors, nurses, and paramedical staff is well recognized across the globe. Often called the pharmacy of the world, India is also one of the largest manufacturers of pharmaceuticals and supplies a large portion of vaccines across the globe,” said the health minister adding that these strengths and capabilities have contributed to India emerging as a crucial place as far as medical tourism is concerned.
