Securing a medical appointment
FRRO stands for Foreigners Regional Registration Office and this is required if you are travelling for medical requirement and have a Visa type 'M' which means 'Medical'. This Visa gives you multiple entries and provides you a longer stay at India. Our Patient Services Co-ordinators will do the processing for your registration and you will just need to follow their instruction on the same. You are required to register at the Foreigners Regional Registration Office within 14 days of your arrival. The prescribed format for the same is also available at the International Patients Service Desk.
Patients from Pakistan and Bangladesh are required to register their arrival within 24 hours with the nearest Police Station/Commissioner's Office. Please refer to our Visa/Transit document for instructions.
