Sex change surgery in Medical Tourism

There are some people who are not comfortable with their own gender.They want to change it and looks for various options.Some concludes with surgery as one of the option.Nowadays people have even started travelling to other countries for the same.In India some centres have started promoting themselves as one of the option.The below story talks about it.How much it will be successful only time will tell.

After decades of battling depression, former soldier Betty Ann Archer finally flew to New Delhi to complete her gender transition, one of a growing number of foreigners heading to India for budget sex-change operations.

Born Dale Archer, the 64-year-old American said she felt trapped in the wrong body right from the start, recalling secretly trying on her mother’s dresses as a boy — much to the horror of her conservative military father.

“I attempted to kill myself twice… I didn’t like myself. I didn’t like my body at all. I couldn’t be myself,” said Archer, who is from Arizona.

“I became very ill in 2011 and almost died,” she said, wearing a bright blue sari and ornate Indian jewellery that she bought after her gender reassignment surgery in Delhi.

“While I was recovering I came to the conclusion that I had to transition or die.”

A small but steadily increasing number of transgenders are travelling to socially conservative India for such procedures, which are cheaper than those in their homelands and with no waiting lists, according to industry experts.

Some are even choosing India, which has traditionally shunned its own transgender community, over leading sex-change destination Thailand which is regarded as more accepting on this issue.

Government Portals

Nowadays every country is promoting themselves as medical tourism destination.Government is equally supporting them.For eg-In India, is the portal launched by the government to make medical tourist aware about the different services available here in India.Similarly Dubai’s Dubai Health Authority launched their portal for medical tourism to make the  process smoother.More u research,more you will find that the government of every country is planning the portals.

E-visas to boost Indian Medical Tourism

In a major boost to medical tourism, the Centre is set to announce e-visas for patients seeking prolonged treatment in recognised healthcare centres.

Sources said the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has agreed to this move, on the intervention of the Prime Minister’s Office, and the announcement is likely to be made after the current session of Parliament. The MHA, however, turned down the tourism ministry’s request for e-visas for meetings, conferences and events, said sources.

Applicants from nearly 150 countries eligible for e-tourist visas will be able to send online applications for medical visas with scanned copies of medical prescriptions from a government-accredited hospital of his/ her country. The applicant’s biometric details will be taken on arrival.

The short term medical visa will be valid for 30 days from the date of arrival, after which the home department of individual states can extend it by up to one year, provided the application is based on a medical certificate backed by documented advice from a specialised and reputed hospital here. Further extension can be granted only by the MHA. Currently, patients coming to India for medical treatment have to seek online appointments from Indian missions which take “several weeks or even a month”. Besides the long wait, the patient is required to be physically present during the embassy interaction. The patient also has to furnish a prior tie-up certificate from the Indian hospital willing to treat him. Niti Aayog’s roadmap to ensure annual 10 per cent growth lists medical tourism as one of the seven boosters. Citing a report by industry body CII and consultancy firm Grant Thornton, the policy agency says India’s medical tourism — currently pegged at $3 billion — could be worth over $8 billion by 2020. Compared to places like the US, Europe, Australia and Japan, the cost of treatment is lower in India, even as the quality of treatment and availability of medical facilities are at par with them. The visa relaxation follows the tourism ministry’s efforts to bring India at par with competing nations like Thailand, Malaysia, Dubai and Singapore which offer visa on arrival. “It is well known that the potential of medical tourism to earn foreign exchange and create jobs in India is much bigger than any other form of tourism. However, there is a requirement to make the medical visa regime more customer friendly,” the tourism ministry wrote to the finance ministry last February. It attached a January 13 recommendation of the National Medical and Wellness Board which said it would be “appropriate if India reforms its medical tourism visa regime and allows international patients to apply for medical visas online like the holiday makers”
