Ayush Visa will take India’s travel and healthcare industries to new heights
Indians are known for their hospitality, the phrase ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ is the core ethos of Indian hospitality, it is the guiding thought for hosts to go out of the way to treat guests with the same reverence as God. This philosophy guides Indian tourism and hospitality to welcome tourists from all over the world and extends them an unforgettable experience. Coupled with the vastness of the Indian healthcare industry, the Indian govt is now set to make the country a medical tourism destination. India’s rich history of medicine goes back to Vedic times, Ayurveda being the oldest system of medicine that can be traced back to 8000 BCE. Today several modern methods of treatment and surgeries are invented by Indians.
The importance of medical value travel destinations is on the rise. It is gaining momentum mainly in the tourism and travel industries. It refers to a branch of tourism in which overseas patients visit a country for availing of medical treatment. India is new in this field, but it is becoming quite strong in this field. The bonus that will accelerate India’s growth and momentum in this domain is the Ayush Visa which will be available in a few months. Overseas patients can visit India on an Ayush Visa and seek medical treatments that the country’s treatment sector has to offer.
How will the Ayush Visas work?
Ayush comprises- Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy. The government plans to push AYUSH medical tourism with the theme- Heal in India. The Ayush Visa is a big part of this new initiative. Under the Ayush initiative, traditional medicines and healing processes will be encouraged. Practitioners of both modern medicines and AYUSH are expected to work together to make India the preferred medical value travel destination. The country has a rich past in Ayurveda, naturopathy, and yoga, so the government decided to smartly deploy this advantage into making India a great country.
Experts have claimed that it is important to note that medical value travel is not only for wellness, but it also branches out to many other therapeutic procedures such as spiritual and yoga retreats. Every year, there are several individuals travel to India for these specific retreats. A lot of destinations like Uttarakhand, Kerala, Maharashtra, Goa, and Karnataka already have special spiritual and yoga retreats. Now with the emergence of the Ayush Visa, India can expect to welcome more overseas visitors, aiding in advancing the country’s tourism and healthcare sectors.
