Medical Visa Information After You Arrive in India


Medical Visa Extension

Visa extension is required when the patient needs more time for his treatment and thus requires an extension in his/her stay in the country. To extend ones visa he or she should get an official written document from the concerned hospital.  One has to visit the FRRO’s office to get his/her medical visa extended.



The Foreign Regional Registration Office (FRRO) is the primary agency that controls all the nuances of visa registration, arrival and departure of foreigners and the extension of stay in India. Afghan nationals have to register with the concerned FRRO within 7 days of their arrival in India.
