Close proximity: A patient from any of the Arab world country can be easily transferred to India because of their close proximity to the Indian subcontinent, as compared to some of the other Western countries from where medical tourists come to India. This not only means that the time of traveling is less, but also indicates that the patient can be comfortably transferred back home after the procedure.
Accessibility: Most of the Arab countries are connected to India through direct flights which is one of the biggest advantages that most medical tourists seek while traveling to India. This not only ensures a hassle-free travel, but also helps make travel planning and time management easier.
Patients and their family members coming from selected countries for a short duration can seek visa-on-arrival for 30 days, given that they are traveling for medical treatment. This completely eliminates the headache of getting a visa to travel to India.
The government of India long back removed the restriction on tourist visas requiring at least two-month gap on consecutive visit to India. However, this has been done only for certain Gulf countries.
Most of the hospitals in India now have their in-house translators available for medical tourists coming from the Arab countries. These translators are available around the clock to help patients in communication clearly with the doctors and other hospital authorities.
