Foreign Patient Services in Ahmedabad

Plan Your Health Trip

Our International Relations Department will ensure seamless exchange of information regarding treatment modality, costs involved, probable outcomes, duration of stay (both in and out of the hospital) etc.

Once you have decided to travel, its time to ensure the following :

  • Procure a Visa Invitation clearly indicating the purpose of travel, duration of treatment & approximate duration of stay from the hospital & carry the same at all times during the journey
  • Check if you need any vaccination(s) - usually patients traveling to India would need Yellow Fever & Oral Polio Vaccines
  • Apply for the requisite visa (If your county is not offered Visa on Arrival)
  • Ensure all medical reports are placed together in a bag safely, preferably carry the same in hand baggage (sometimes checked baggage is delayed / lost)
  • Check on the Local Weather and chose clothing accordingly
  • Ensure you carry comfortable pair of foot wares
  • For patients who are on medication - they must carry medication along with them for at least 4 days
  • Prepare a brief history of illness indicating month & year of symptoms etc., also include family history of disease(s)
  • Check with airlines for any forms / declaration they would like you to fill before your travel. In case of patients with special needs like wheelchair it is advised to indicate the same while booking the tickets
  • Share the detailed itinerary with the hospital representative, look for the Zydus Hospitals Placard in your name

Procuring Visa
  • Ideally the patient should seek Medical Visa (MV) & the relative / caregiver accompanying the patient should seek Medical Attendant (MV-X) for 30 days, 60 days, 90 days or 180 days (choice available may vary from country to country)
  • There are options of Single Entry, Double Entry or Multiple Entry Medical / Medical Attendant Visa (choice available may vary from country to country)
  • Unless otherwise indicated in the hospital visa invite, please apply for 90 days Single Entry Medical Visa - for clarifications you may take assistance from our team member(s)
