An official source in the Department of Consular Affairs urged Qatari citizens seeking medical treatment in India to observe instructions issued by the competent authorities in India.

The source said that for medical treatment in India certain conditions should be observed including obtaining a visa for the patient (treatment visa) from the Indian Embassy in Doha and obtaining a visa (companion visa) for the person accompanying the patient, if required.

It is also necessary to obtain a letter signed and stamped from the hospital concerned showing the consent to receive the patient and the initial schedule of the treatment, including the expected duration and estimated costs. The source stated that following the mentioned instructions allow patients and their companions to extend the visa duration if necessary. The source also urged Qatari citizens to visit the Indian embassy in Qatar website to get more information with regard to medical treatment in India.
