An Emergency Certificate (one-way travel document), which authorizes an Indian citizen to enter India, is issued to individuals who have lost their passports or their passports have been stolen or damaged and to whom new passports cannot be issued without approval from India. This document is issued primarily with the objective of ensuring the applicant’s return to India in an emergency. Applicants should follow the instructions in New passport in lieu of lost/damaged passport section for the issue of a new passport and seek a personal interview with the Consular Officer whose decision will be final. In case of applicants under deportation or under orders of deportation, the application should be submitted through the Deportation Officer from the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement/Department of Homeland Security.
