Points to remember
while you are at our hospital
Registration at Hospital : You are required to produce your passport at the registration counter to get registered at our hospital. The hospital will maintain a copy of your passport (Photo page and visa page) in your hospital record. This is mandatory and is based on the directives from the Government of India.
Registration at FRRO : Registration at the Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) is required within 14 days of arrival if the duration of stay on your Medical Visa exceeds 180 days, even you don't intend to stay here for that period. Patients from Pakistan and Bangladesh are required to register their arrival within 24 hours with the nearest Police Station / Commissioner's Office. Our staff will guide you for the same. We advice you to make sure that your visa doesn't exceed 180 days to avoid this. If you belong to any of these countries, you can apply for an eTourist Visa.
Form C : It is a general information to the government officials concerned (FRRO) upon a foriegner's arrival in the hospital. The required formalities for this procedure will be done by the hospital's staff and all you need to do is to fill and sign the Form C which will be provided once you are here.
Signing The Consent Form : You will need to sign the consent form of the surgery. It is recommended that you read it carefully before signing and clear all your doubts from the doctor / staff.
Payments : Payment is preferably accepted in advance through money transfer via banks / wire transfer (recommended) or through cash, we accept all major credit cards like VISA, MASTER CARD etc. Make sure that the type of payment mode is confirmed by our Finance department and your bank before you plan to travel because in some instances, bank or credit/debit card provider companies reduce the limit of withdrawl once you are out of country (better intimate them beforehand). If any such thing happens, surgery will be postponed till the financial clearance. To avoid hassle & anxiety before surgery, it is suggested to make payment in advance. It is important that the patient should relax and stay away from all the anxieties before the surgery.
