The Indian passports are divided into two categories as ECR(Emigration Check Required) and ECNR(Emigration Check Not Required), depending on the educational qualification of the applicant or traveler. This stamp is to verify that this person has passed matriculation or not. Since people travel overseas for employment purpose, it is necessary to verify this category to ensure the appropriate treatment of people in their respective working place

As per the Emigration Act of 1983, some passport owners have to obtain an Emigration Clearance from POE or Protector of Emigrants’ office before traveling to other countries. This stamp will save employers from being exploited.
