can i travel if I have ECR on my passport?
My passport has a ECR (Emigration check required) stamp on it and i am about to travel overseas. Will this cause a problem at the immigration? If yes, how to get rid of this issue?
As per Emigration Act, 1983, “ emigration” means that leaving of India of any Indian citizen with the intend to take up employment in a foreign country.
The idea behind ECR is for safety of Indian citizen due to the legal conditions of other countries and is based on various situation /conditions.
If you have ECR that means you require emigration clearance from office Protector of Emigrants (POE) .
