As he is traveling to UAE for job, he would need ECNR status on passport or emigration clearance from Protector of Emigrants (PoE) office before he can travel.

For emigration clearance he would need to go to PoE office. He may also apply online here:

He may also be eligible for ECNR status if he has been staying abroad for more than three years (the period of three years could be either in one stretch or broken).
