Will I Be Arrested on My Flight to China Through Abu Dhabi? – Robert

“Dear Steve,

After loosing my job in UAE, I left the country to be back in my HOME country.
After 6 months, I received many SMS or email taht a police case was open against me.
Finally I find a job in China and will fly to Beijing but with connection flight in Abu Dhabi.

Do you think that is dangerous for me to use this flight or I have to take another flight with no connection in UAE or GCC Countries from Euorpe to Beijing ?


Dear Robert,

Others in similar situations have reported they were able to make connecting flights in the UAE without a problem. I realize it is a very stressful situation but based on the comments I have read here from others, it appears to not be an issue.

Now, if the UAE was your final destination, that would be a different matter.

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

    Be careful with connecting flights through the UAE, especially if the second leg is delayed for any reason. If there is a delay, DO NOT go through passport control. I was caught out earlier this year when my second flight to Bangkok was delayed by eight or nine hours and I was given a hotel voucher and told to leave through passport control to go to the hotel. I was picked up, despite having an agreement in place in the UK for the debt AND having been into AD last year without a problem (the debt was from 2007)! I ended up being carted off to Dubai, but managed to get released after 12 hours thanks to some friends who pulled some strings and a visit from the bank representative who made me agree a new payment plan.
