Attention Indians who are going to travel to the United States. Your entry to the ace nation can be restricted if you are found carrying medicines without any prescription. Indian travelers use to carry medicines which we can call a mini dispensary. It is not only their regular medicines but also medical contingencies ranging from fever, stomach ache, and other problems as well.
This is mainly due to one problem. medicines in the United States are way more costly when compared to India. The other reason is that they are hard to access. It is not possible like in India – one can directly walk into a medical store and without any prescription can they walk out with medicines for smaller ailments. Drugstores in the US are strict to enforce this requirement.
As a result, Indians traveling to the US used to take out medicines with them. However, that will now be not possible. According to the new rules, a valid prescription or doctor’s note which is written in English is needed to bring medication to the US. The medication should be in its original container with the doctor’s instructions printed on it.
