For protection and security of Indian women emigrants, no emigration clearance is granted to women below 30 years and above 50 years of age holding Emigration Check Required (ECR) Passport. This restriction applies to Indian women emigrants having ECR endorsed on Passports and going to any of the 18 ECR countries. Presently, only six State run recruiting agencies namely (a) NORKA Roots (Kerala), (b) ODEPC (Kerala), (c) OMCL (Tamil Nadu), (d) UPFC (Uttar Pradesh), (e) OMCAP (Andhra Pradesh) and (f) TOMCOM (Telangana), have been authorised to recruit female workers. There is a ban on sending on any emigrant to Libya due to deteriorated security situation.
In case of advertisement given by a registered Recruiting Agent, it must be checked that his Registration Certificate (RC) is clearly mentioned. The RC must be valid. Similarly, advertisement given by Foreign Employers and Project Exporters should indicate their Permit number. Full address with contact telephone/fax numbers, Post Box numbers, e-mail address of the advertiser should be mentioned in addition to nature of job and offered salary particulars to enable prospective applicant to check veracity of job and of such employers. In case of any doubt, clarifications can also be sought from the Protector General of Emigrants as well as Protector of Emigrants.
Attestation of employment documents by the Indian Mission/Post concerned is mandatory in the case of recruitment of "unskilled workers" and "housemaids" for any of 18 ECR countries.
