To regulate overseas employment especially for protection of less educated blue collar workers, the Emigration Check Required process is regulated through a unique computerised system called “e-Migrate”. This is a system which is integrated with the Passport Sewa Project of the Ministry of External Affairs and Bureau of Immigration of the Ministry of Home Affairs onone-hand and the Indian Missions in the 18 ECR This ensures that all Stakeholders of the emigrants are on the same electronic-platform, which greatly enhances the “Ease-of-doing-business” and ensures prompt and easy action on all fronts to all the Stakeholders. Whenever an emigrant arrives at an airport or check-post to proceed abroad, his Passport details are validated online by the Immigration Officers and only those who have obtained Emigration Clearance are allowed to travel. This is a measure to ensure protection against possible exploitation, of the Indian workers.
