Why you should apply now
Medical tourism to India is on its way to becoming one of Asia’s most booming industries. Every year, thousands of people from around the world travel to India for affordable and quality medical procedures. But if you don’t act now, you might miss out on your chance at securing a medical attendant visa – because demand is high, and space is limited. Apply Now before it’s too late!
When to apply?
The medical attendant visa is usually issued to those who have already obtained an employment visa in India. If you are looking to get your employment visa, but aren’t exactly sure what it is you want to do, you can still apply for your medical attendant visa while obtaining your employment visa. If you want to obtain an employment visa and an accompanying medical attendant visa in order to travel to India as well as work there, keep in mind that both will take some time. The process generally takes anywhere from two weeks to one month; however, there are often extensions available when circumstances call for them.
What do I need to apply?
First and foremost, it’s important to confirm that you have all of your paperwork in order. If you don’t, your visa could be denied. In addition to your medical school diploma and transcripts, you will need to submit several other documents. All non-citizens planning on working in India must provide fingerprints, letters of reference from both international and Indian medical schools (you can ask someone else to send these on your behalf), and at least two passport-sized photos. You must also include proof of HIV status. Finally, if you are applying as an adult-dependent or spouse, make sure they have their own health insurance while staying in India with you—the government won’t cover them otherwise.

How do I make sure I meet all criteria?
Now that you have decided that you are going to look into applying for a medical attendant visa in India, your next question is probably How do I make sure I meet all criteria? In order to get a medical attendant visa, you will need to make sure that you meet certain requirements. First and foremost, your main concern should be whether or not your qualifications match up with those of either an experienced or certified medical attendant. To clarify: if you want to work as an experienced medical attendant, then you must at least hold secondary school level education; if you want to be certified, then your education must be formalized and equal to higher secondary (HS) level.
What are the possible outcomes of my application?
The process of getting your medical attendant visa for India can be completed within as little as 3 weeks, but remember that there is always room for error. In some cases, your application can be delayed due to missing or incorrect documents. If you are denied or are not granted an entry visa, you may appeal your case and reapply within 30 days of receiving notice of rejection. You must provide a copy of the rejection letter with your new application if you wish to use it as grounds for appeal. Your appeal decision will take about 4–6 weeks after receipt at Embassy, so plan accordingly! See below for more on possible outcomes and duration

How long can I stay in India with this visa?
A medical attendant visa can be issued in three-month increments, which means that you could stay up to six months total. If you have family members with medical conditions, it may be possible to extend your stay beyond six months. This visa also allows you to apply for an extension once you’re already in India. There is no specific process for extending your visa; most of our clients apply at their local Indian consulate when they arrive and are granted an extension based on their employment. Be aware that it takes several weeks from the time of application until receiving confirmation of your extended visa status, so keep that in mind when planning your trip. This is particularly important if you will not receive much support from an employer or agent during your time in India.
