How can we help you?

How much foreign exchange can I purchase when going abroad for a medical treatment?

You can avail foreign exchange up to USD 2,50,000 or it’s equivalent for medical treatment abroad on a Self-Declaration basis in Form A2 and ‘Application cum declaration for purchase of foreign exchange under LRS of USD 2,50,000, without any estimate from a hospital/doctor in India/abroad.

However, in case the foreign exchange exceeds the above limit, the request needs to be supported by an estimate from a hospital/doctor in India/abroad.

Further, additionally an amount up to USD 2,50,000 per financial year is allowed to a person for accompanying as an attendant to a patient going abroad for medical treatment/check-up.
