Emigration clearance for housemaid

Dear Sir,

I am residing at Sharjah and have taken a visa to bring a housemade from India. I already have completed all the formalities at Indian Consulate in Dubai ( a letter granting permission to recruit the FHSW, attest the Employment Contract...etc) and i was asked to complete the formalities at the protector of emigrant office in India to obtain POI stamp in the passport. But, when we approached a travel agency in India to do get this job done, they informed us that such formalities are not required as our house made is 51 years old ( More than 50 years). They informed us that she can travel with the papers received from indian consulate. I would like to clarify this subject from Indian consulate.

As she has to travel soon to Sharjah, could you please advise me whether the above matter is correct. Do we still have to approach the POI office to get stamp as she is more than 50 Years. Your reply will be very much appreciated as she has to travel this week

Regards PAREED

She can get ECNR status on her passport as she is more than 50 years of age. In this case she won't need emigration clearance from PoE office.

She would need to apply for reissue of passport for ECNR and submit any of the below proof for age:
i) Birth Certificate issued by the Municipal Authority or any office authorized to issue Birth and Death Certificate by the Registrar of Births & Deaths
ii) School leaving certificate / Secondary School leaving certificate/ Certificate of Recognized Boards from the school last attended by the applicant or any other recognized educational institution
iii) Affidavit sworn before a Magistrate/Notary stating date/place of birth as per the specimen in Annexure "A" by illiterate or semi-illiterate applicants (Less than 5th class)

If she cannot get ECNR status or don't want to apply for reissue of passport, she would need following documents to get emigration clearance from PoE:

  1. Passport (valid atleast for six months)
  2. Valid Employment Visa
  3. Original Contract Duly Signed by Foreign Employer and attested by concerned Indian mission
  4. Valid Pravasi Bhartiya Bima Policy 2006

Approval of the Ministry is only required if candidates is a female aged 30 years or less and being deployed as housemaid.
