FICCI recommends 16-point agenda to position India as most preferred healthcare destination

In a bid to leverage the inherent comparative and competitive advantages as a nation and position India as the most preferred healthcare destination, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) has made wide-ranging recommendations to capitalise on the available opportunities in the Medical Value Travel (MVT) market. The FICCI has recommended a 16-point agenda in this regard which includes simplified and relaxed medical visa regulations for patients including visa on arrival; multiple entry medical visa to facilitate follow-up treatments; promotion of MVT by Indian embassies; medical facilitation desk at Indian airports for medical visa holders to eliminate the problem of touts; faster immigration facilities at Indian airports; and an advisory or checklist should be provided at the time of grant of medical visa. The list of recommendation includes access to put ambulance and stretchers at airports; fiscal laws to be relaxed for genuine foreign patients
