Health Ministry supporting efforts to revive inbound tourism: Dr Harsh Vardhan

Addressing delegates via video conferencing at the inaugural edition of the hybrid India Tourism Mart (ITM), Dr Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister of Health & Family Welfare, said that his ministry is supporting Ministry of Tourism’s efforts in reviving international tourism to India. 

“I am sure, you are already aware that 80% of our domestic flights are operating.  We have already started issuing medical visas and we are planning to soon restart E-Tourist Visas and schedule international flights in a phased manner. On a reciprocal basis, first with those countries with which we have an air bubble agreement,” Dr Vardhan said. 

Every State of India has world class Hospitals and a lot of these Hospitals can be compared to the best in the world.  Indian doctors, nurses, Indian medical system and Indian Medical education are recognised and respected everywhere. They are in great demand by the hospitals of America, UK, Europe and Middle East.  India is also one of the largest exporters of medicine and pharmaceuticals. I understand that in the leadership conclave you also have a session on India Healing The world and Medical Tourism.
