Blacklisted and unpaid debts in UAE - work in GCC?

Postby lifeindebt » 21 Jul 2009, 16:31


I have worked in UAE -Dubai for 5 yrs and i have bank debts (Credit cards and personal loans and car loans) in that country and i came back to India without paying them back.My UAE residence visa also not cancelled.Its been a year now.

Basically i am from India and What can i do other than this if i don’t have a job.

I got a job again in a GCC Country. I got a entry visa to other GCC Country

I heard if there is one bank security cheque bounce case UAE police issue the arrest warrant

2.will i get arrested if i go to any other GCC?

3.If the UAE issues arrest warrant thats applicable only in UAE right? They can issue GCC arrest warrant to arrest in any GCC country?

4.If the immigration systems are not shared by the GCC countries how UAE will come to know if i am in other GCC country

5.UAE can extradit me from other GCC? The UAE warrant info shared among all the GCC countries?

Please let me know so that i can decide and get it into another job and then will pay off my debts

UAE GCC extradition?

Postby shawarma » 23 Jul 2009, 19:47

1. Yes, bouncing a check is regarded as a criminal offence.
2. Possibly, depends what communication there has been between the banks and/or the police in the two countries.
3. I think individual countries issue arrest warrants for within a country but I guess the UAE police can request the police in another country to issue an arrest warrant?
4. I would assume there is some sort of communication between the GCC countries whereby immigration of one can or might notify police/immigration in another country.
5. I'm not sure what extradition arrangements there are between the various GCC countries. It might vary between countries and depending on the offence. I would suggest contacting a lawyer and/or the police in the respective countries.

There's another topic with a similar discussion here: UAE entry restrictions when blacklisted in other GCC country

No need to worry...You can work in any other GCC. they cannot catch u..I am in a similar position but working in another GCC country for the last 3 years. Do not open any account in master card or visa card. Open an account only with a local bank for salary transfer.

[edit by mod]removed inflammatory question, please see forum posting guidelines[/edit] yes the person in debt will still get caught even if he/she enters a different country in the GCC

I have worked in UAE -Dubai for 7 yrs the company o worked for closed but I styed for another 10 months doing odd jobs until I couldn’t make payment anymore on my CC so I left the country 15 months ago. I was told I have a police case for bounce check.

I’m still in contact with the collection agency and the banks for lower settlements but they are refusing my offer.

I want to go back to UAE or GCC would I be caught at the airports? I’m a USA citizen and I have changed my name and the passport and I don’t have an eye scan at the airport.

Any thoughts are wellcome
