The Indian government is about to bring some changes into the tourist industry. India might become a popular destination for medical tourists.
So far India has been considered as a credible provider of curative treatment. Now the government is about to focus on the vast potential in this sector. Currently, the medical tourism industry in India is a $3 billion industry. By the year of 2020, it is expected to become a $9 billion opportunity. The government focuses on promoting Indian health-care facilities, thats why the traveling to India is becoming easier and more accessible, and the Indian medical visa has already become easier to get. The process to issue medical visas has been streamlined, and the quantity of e-tourist visa has increased.
By January 2018 it is planned to build six facilitation centers special for medical tourists in cities of Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Delhi, and Goa.The Indian government is taking all these measurements to attract international medical travelers and seems like India might become a leading medical tourism destination in the future.
