India is known internationally for its time-tested, ancient Ayurvedic treatments and medicines that are used to cure and heal many ailments. And the government of India has been making efforts to promote the manifold benefits of traditional medicine and Ayurveda to international tourists who often visit India for acquiring these treatments. Now, it will get even easier for them to do so.

Recently, Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi at an official function announced that India will soon introduce an AYUSH visa category for international travellers seeking traditional treatment in the country. “With this visa, it will make travel easier for accessing Ayush therapies (in India),” he said.
