Will I be Arrested in Qatar Because of My Debt and Unwell Mum?

By on December 5, 2018

Question:

Dear Jon,

I have been working in Qatar for the past few months and had to leave after getting news that my mum was unwell. When I left I had a balance of 5300 QAR on my account, around about 1200 GBP. The bank has not been in touch with me however I am worried about what’s going to happen to that money as I cannot pay it off at this moment.

Am I going to get arrested when I go to the airport? Can they put me on Interpol?

David

Answer:

David,

My advice would be to contact the bank and inquire as to the status of the account. Obviously, if they have issued any form of warrant, returning would not be a good idea.

Interpol to my knowledge does not get involved in these sort of matters.

Inquire with the bank, and we can go from there.

Do you have any plans to return?

Will you be working in the future, and able to repay the loan?

Let me know and we can look more into this and your options.

Regards,

Jon

    Hey Jon,

    So I am back in the UK and start working again in the UK next week, I am able to pay it off but need to settle back into home first etc. I don’t have any UK debts just this card in Qatar.

    They haven’t issues any warrants for me yet, and I do not plan to return anytime soon. I just want peace of mind. I would be able to pay it in halfs from January onwards.

    I dont even know how to get in touch with a bank in Qatar.

      David,

      The bank may have some contact details on their web site, if they have one. You also may try looking through any paperwork or correspondence, emails, you may have from them in the past.

      If you cannot find any contact details, the bank may find you in trying to collect the account.

      Taking time to settle in here in the UK is fine and understandable. When you are ready to repay the account, that would be a good time to contact the bank.

      Regards,

      Jon
