An EC is a one-way travel document valid only for the return trip back to India and is issued after the High Commission is satisfied on the bona-fides of the applicant. Upon return to India, the applicant may approach the passport office which had issued the original passport for issuing a duplicate passport on production of the EC. Tourists who have lost/damaged their passport would be considered for an Emergency Certificate (EC).
