Dear Ahmed,

Owing any past due debt in the UAE or any GCC country can be a problem. If you can’t repay the debt and you’ve missed payment there may be an arrest warrant waiting for you. If you cross the border on any GCC country with a warrant against you, you may be detained and your passport seized.

Others have been able to successful make connecting flights through the UAE but many have been arrested if they enter the country. If you can’t afford to pay the debt you should be prepared to go to jail.

Before you return to the UAE you should contact a lawyer there and ask them to find out if there is an arrest warrant out in your name. The lawyer can then advise you further.

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