As part of attempts to boost medical tourism, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated on 20TH April that the Centre would soon develop a new Ayush visa category for foreigners who want to come to India to take advantage of traditional medicine.

Ayush visa will make travel simpler for accessing Ayush therapies

PM Modi said at the Mahatma Mandir in Gandhinagar's first session of the Global Ayush Investment and Innovation Summit 2022, "This visa will make travel simpler for accessing Ayush therapies (in India)."

He went on to say that the Centre is working on several efforts to help the Ayush sector grow, including the creation of a digital portal to connect medicinal plant growers with Ayush product makers.

Modi highlighted that the idea for an Ayush summit came to him during covid-19

Modi went on to say that investment summits are crucial in moving any industry forward and that the idea for an Ayush summit came to him during Covid-19, "when there was great concern around the world."
"We noticed how ayurvedic medications, Ayush Kada, and other similar items helped people boost their immunity." Turmeric exports from India surged dramatically during the Covid-19 period.

Any sector's capability is multiplied by innovation and investment. "Now is the time to invest as much as possible in the Ayush sector," Modi stated.

Limitless possibilities of innovation and investment

Modi emphasized actions planned by the government soon to further support this sector, including assisting farmers, encouraging startups, and incentivizing medical tourism, citing the "limitless possibilities of innovation and investment."

"There are opportunities for innovation and investment everywhere, whether it's in natural supplements, medication supply chains, Ayush-based diagnostics, or telemedicine.

Many initiatives have been taken to foster traditional medicine startups...Just a few days ago; the All India Institute of Ayurveda opened an incubation center.

The Himalayas are famed for herbal plants...our government is supporting the development of herbal and therapeutic plants," Modi said, emphasizing the importance of a long-term digital marketplace.

It has the potential to be a source of long-term income and create jobs. However, the market for such plants is small and specialized. Farmers like this must find it simple to connect with the market.

As a result, the government is working quickly to create an e-marketplace, which would connect enterprises that make Ayush goods with farmers who grow medicinal plants.
