My Son is a student of Grade 11 in US and will be joining Grade 12 coming Aug-18 . He holds a valid US F1 Visa , which is Valid till 2020. He joined this school in 2015 , and did his grade 9th (2016) , 10th (2017) and 11th (2018) from there .
He holds an Indian Passport , and his passport is expiring In dec 2018 .He came to Delhi on in May-18 for his summer break .As per our understanding , his passport should have at least 6 months validity at the time of travel. As he has to join back his school on 8th Aug-18 after his summer break , we have been advised by our travel agent to get his passport renewed before his travel.
When we went to the passport office yesterday , the passport office were ready to renew his passport , but , as My has not cleared his class 10th exam in India , they are giving him the passport under ECR category - ECR means Emigration check required . Holders of ECR passports need a clearance called an Emigration Check from the Government of India's Protector of Emigrants when going to selected countries on a work visa. The Selected countries doesn’t include USA. Earlier he had a passport under ECNR Category .
My query to you is specific to a situation at the time of Vishal’s Landing at the USA airport , and the query is do you foresee Vishal having a problem with US immigration , if he travels back in Aug-18 with his renewed passport under ECR category ?
