is paper VISA with old passsport number valid for reissued passport.

Hi Pankaj,

I got my emploement visa , but could not board the plane as i had ECR status on my passport. Now I have got new passport with non-ECR status.

I have paper-visa sent by my employee via email. Is my VISA which has my old passport number still valid ? My new passport has reference to old passport number on it's last page. On which VISA shall stamping be on done , once i reach dubai ?

Thanks in advance

Visa on older passport would still be valid. You would need to carry old passport along with new one always.
