I’m in Canada But Have Bad Debt in Bahrain. – Peter

“Dear Steve,

im a permanent resident in canada, right now. i have unpaid loan in bahrain and agency is chasing me. they said i’ll be hunted down by interpol, ban in any travel and blacklist in any immigration. and put me in jail.

can they do that? what will be the problem if i’m not going to pay it? (i dont want to pay it anyway). thank you


Dear Peter,

While it is possible you may start to get some collection calls in Canada, the possibility is remote that it would increase passed just that, calls.

I have not heard of any case where someone was arrested outside of the GCC countries for a debt in the GCC, including Bahrain.

Your issue would be a problem in you tried to travel back to Bahrain and the GCC countries if an arrest warrant has been filed against you. Do you intend to travel back home?

The best possible solution, if you do owe this money, is to either come to an agreement on a repayment plan you can afford. Even a bankruptcy in Canada would not extinguish a debt in Bahrain.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.
