Will I Be Able to Travel to United Arab Emirate Without Fear of Arrest? – Graham

“Dear Steve,

I am planning a family vacation to Dubai in the near future, but have become worried about a credit card balance of about 600AED with HSBC that was left unpaid in 2001 when I returned home to the UK after a period of residency in Dubai.

Would this outstanding debt mean I have an outstanding warrant for my arrest in Dubai, and if I contacted HSBC and paid off the debt, would I then be able to travel to the emirate without fear of arrest ?

Thanks for your help,



Dear Graham,

I don’t have a clue if there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest waiting for you in the UAE. Your best solution would be for you to contact a lawyer in the Emirate and ask for legal advice regarding the matter.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.

P.S. Be sure to read ‘The Secret of Surviving Through Difficult Economic Times. What I Learned On My Journey‘.
