What are the different kinds of Visa for medical tourists planning to come to India?

Up to two attendants who are blood relatives are allowed to accompany the patient. The visa duration starts on the day of issuance, and not on the day of entry to India.
- Medical Attendant Visa(MEDX) - As discussed up to two attendants who are blood relatives are allowed to accompany the patient. The attendants can apply for a Medical Attendant Visa, that is coterminous with the Medical Visa of the patient.
The initial validity of the above two Visas may be up to a period of one year or the period of treatment , whichever is less. This period can be further extended by up to one year by the State Government/FRROs on the production of medical certificates/advice from established/recognized/specialized hospitals/ treatment centers in India.
The Visa is valid for a maximum of three entries in an year.

This Visa is granted for short duration to the nationals of Finland, Japan, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Singapore, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines, Laos, Myanmar and Indonesia.
The Visa on Arrival of a tourist who falls ill after their entry into India rendering them unfit to travel and require specialized treatment may be converted into Medical Visa(MED) if they are eligible and medical certificate is obtained from the Government/recognized hospitals. Also the Visa on Arrival of the foreigner accompanying the tourist falling ill can be converted to the Medical Attendant Visa(MEDX) which is coterminous with the medical visa of the patient.

How does one make a choice between India and Thailand as a medical tourism destination?
Both India and Thailand are the World's biggest medical tourism destination, but India is definitely a clear winner because of the following advantages :-
- Complex Treatment - Thailand specializes only in cosmetic procedures whereas India specializes in curative and complex procedures like cardiology(heart care), oncology(cancer care), kidney care, heart, lung and Bone marrow transplant, in addition to cosmetic surgeries.
- English Speaking Staff - India is the largest English speaking nation of the world, so the entire hospital staff from doctors to the nursing staff are well versed in English and can relate to the patient's needs really well. Hence the patients as well as the attendants feel at home throughout the process of medical tourism in India.
- Alternate Therapies - India is the birth place of one of the most effective alternate therapies know to mankind like Ayurveda and Yoga. Not only these therapies help the patients recuperate very fast but also detoxify the body.
- NABH and JCI Accreditation - India has a national accreditation board just like the JCI by the name of NABH( National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Health Care providers which is a stringent accreditation and enforces standards that are at par with Global standards. India has a total of 19 JCI accredited and 183 NABH accredited hospitals.
- More Cost Effective- A typical medical procedure costs 6%-20% of the US costs in India, whereas 10%-30% of the US costs in Thailandfor the same procedure. India offers treatments that are world class and at costs that are lesser than any of the medical tourism providing countries.
For instance a knee replacement surgery in India would cost around $6000 to $9000 in an accredited hospital, whereas knee replacement would cost $10,700 to $13,200 in Thailand and $45000 in the US. Similarly a hip replacement surgery in India is going to cost $7000 to $9000 in India in an accredited hospital, whereas the
same hip replacement surgery is going to cost somewhere around $12000 to $17000 in Thailand and around $50000 in the US.
