Another team member assisted the patient in the visa application form. Mr Hussein received the medical eVisa within 72 hours. Other than this, his accommodation was also arranged as per his preferences. His airport pickup and drop off was also set up.

After completion of the entire process, he came to India on June 15, 2019. He was received by a team member and taken to the hotel. Thereafter, his appointment was fixed with a senior consultant at ENT Surgery at Artemis hospital. During the appointment, a detailed case history was taken and the patient was sent for further investigations. Only after the reports came back, the doctor confirmed that the patient will need a cochlear transplant surgery. Soon the surgery was performed successfully. He stayed at the hospital for a few days.
