How Can I Make Sure There is No Travel Ban to Prevent Me Leaving Dubai? – Aftab

“Dear Steve,

I have credit cards and personal loans in Dubai and I am paying them in bits and pieces every month. My monthly payments is exceeding my curent income and due to the late payments and back log which I have it is so difficult to get them back in control. I can’t see any solution to this problem as the amounts are huge and it is way out of control. I can’t even get any further loan because of my bad credit history and my company is not listed with most of the banks.

My question is, that if I plan to exit the country how can I ensure that the banks has not imposed a travel ban on my pasport yet and I will not be stopped at the airport? as they always threaten me by sending messages that the travel ban is imposed to put a pressure for payment. I travelled to U.K in August without any hassles under the same circumstances.

  • Speedo

    Hi Steve, Is it possible that banks can arrest the guarantor for the actual borrower’s default?

    Hi Steve , 

    I had some debt in my credit cards in dubai in 2009. I cancelled my visa with out clearing the debts,but i paid my debt at a later stage and and now i am in bahrain and been travelling in and out of gcc. now i need to travel to dubai. I believe if i have a ban in dubai it will be for all gcc na?. so can you please help me where i can know if i have a ban in dubai?

    • http://GetOutOfDebt.org Steve Rhode

      My understanding is that a travel ban is extended to all GCC countries. So if you are able to travel without a problem I would assume you’d be able to travel into Dubai without a problem either.

  • Mktg Ultimate

    I’m already in Sri lanka, but i had dues to pay the bank, unfortunately i couldn’t pay as my visa was expired and i couldnt find somebody to get a Visit visa to go back. Now i’m getting good opportunities, and i hope i can pay back with the offered salary, but i’m afraid at the arrival there will be any problem.

Now i am planning to leave to Australia from India (I am now residing in India) but I am scared if there is any International travel ban, Will they arrest me in Sydney??

    • http://GetOutOfDebt.org Steve Rhode

      A Dubai travel ban is only enforceable within the middle east GCC countries.

    My advice about consulting a lawyer about debt in Dubai is simply prudent. There appear to be few good options other than to leave the country and only a lawyer in Dubai can provide specific legal advice based on local law after reviewing the entire situation.

  • Del01

    Hi Steve, I just can’t help noticing that most of your advice is ” consult a lawyer”….Most people spend time to discuss to you their problems hoping you could enlighten them a bit, but what is the point in writing to you when you will just simply tell your readers to “go find a lawyer”
