VISA

Please do remember to verify whether you need to get a visa for landing in India. Patients from most countries need to have a visa (medical / tourist) to come to India. For a smoother immigration process, it is better to take a medical visa when you come for Ayurveda treatment to India. The process of getting a visa can take anywhere between 1-12 weeks (or sometimes even more), depending on where you are located.

For those of you who get an e-visa, please do verify the airports in India where you can clear immigration with the e-visa - as on date, you cannot land in Coimbatore International Airport with an e-visa. Also do remember that generally you cannot get an extension of stay on your e-visa.

In case of any doubt, please do speak with your travel agent to ensure that your journey to India is smooth and without hurdles.

OVERSEAS TRAVEL MEDICAL INSURANCE

You might want to check with your travel agent about the possibility of acquiring overseas travel medical insurance. This would be useful in case of any emergency medical need during your stay in India.
