new passport with ECNR

Hi Pankaj,

I am working in UAE now. I have passport with ECR stamp on it. I have residence visa of UAE as well. Now in Feb-12 I need to visit India for short term of 3-4 days to bring my wife here. I know I could face problem due to ECR stamp. Can I apply for new passport with ECNR in UAE only? Or can I get in from India even tho I am not present in India? Please suggest some way to get it done. Thanks in advance.

You can get passport reissued in UAE only with ECNR if possible. It would be difficult to get passport issued in India without your presence and police verification, signature etc would be needed.
