  1. Name and Sex
  2. Date of Birth, Nationality

If inadvertently, an immigration stamp is not affixed by the counter officer at the check post, the passenger may immediately contact the concerned FRRO/FRO/SSP and get the same affixed on his/her passport to avoid inconvenience at the time of next travel abroad.

Instructions for Indian Passengers

Indian nationals travelling abroad require a valid Indian passport and travel authority for the destination country. The travel authority is normally in the form of Visa, which is obtained prior to the journey, except in case of countries where “Visa on Arrival” is available.

Indians travelling abroad may also note that some countries insist for certain minimum period of passport validity for allowing entry & for this confirmation should be obtained from the Embassy/travel agent.

Indians having the ECR category of passports require POE clearance from Ministry of Overseas Indians Affairs for certain destinations.

Even for re-entry into the country, an Indian national is required to be in possession of a valid Indian passport or travel document issued by Govt. of India
