Gleneagles Global Hospitals will help you facilitate the paperwork necessary for the Visa, however, the final grant of visa rests upon the embassy and its officials. The embassy may ask for documentation such as proof of address, income to pay for the medical expenses, insurance undertaking, prescription and treatment plan and others as part of the visa application. A visa fee is also levied and must be borne by the individual. If a patient is travelling with a caregiver, the same procedure must be followed to secure a visa for the caregiver.
The easiest means of travel to India and both the centres of Dr.Muthus Hospitals locations would be via flight. The city where our hospitals are located, is Coimbatore which is well connected with the leading destinations in the world. Dr.Muthus Hospitals representatives can help you find the most viable route and plan your travel accordingly. However, we cannot give any assurance of price or availability – both rests on the demand/supply dynamics of the market.
