ECR Stamp on Passport with Valid Saudi Visa

Hello, I have a valid Saudi Arabia Work Visit Visa on my passport. Due to "ECR (Emigration Check Required) stamp on my passport, I cant travel to KSA until the ECR stamp is deleted from my passport. To correct this, I need to renew my passport, which means I will get a new passport with a new passport number. I would like to know if I am allowed to travel to Saudi Arabia with the Valid Visa stamped on my old passport? Please advice.

Regards, Ajith

Visa on old passport would remain valid. You need to carry both new and old passports while travelling.
