How To Drop An Absconding Case

how to drop an absconding case Jan 17, 2012
Dear all,

I was working in Dubai and while I was on leave I’ve submitted my resignation, I sent all the company’ properties except my passport for visa Cancellation, they gave me two months to do so, but I didn't meet the deadline, so they reported me absconding,

The very next week I tried to Contact the HR to solve this problem, I wanted to send my passport, but they never wanted to receive it....

What can I do? Someone said you need to open a case against the company, others said nothing you can do,

in UAE they used to have in immigration law, condition # 126 says; if you were reported absconding and it shows that you are out of the country for more than six months, the case will be dropped automatically. Is that still valid?
What options I still have? I need to get this issue sort it ASAP but no idea how

Yes, after 6 months, any absconding case against you will be dropped. But if you want to give it a fight, you can always open a case. But you will need time and money for this. Not at all worth the try.

As far as I know, absconding case is not automatically removed even you have been out, it has to be fixed between you and employer.

Go and speak to the labour department. The longer you leave it, the more trouble you're getting yourself into.

Again, you'd need to speak to the Labour department and Immigration regarding that. If that's their decision, there's not alot you can do about it unfortunately.

I'v been 6 years from my company, but before my visa expires I resigned and it was acknowledged. When they went for cancellation they come to know that i have a Bank Cheque Case so they ask me to fixed the problem. I went to police station and fixed the problem. I have been in jail for 2 month but when i came out and went direct to office, the company told me that they already filed absconding case against me. Please help me how to remove the absconding as i was in jail and i didnt abscon. I resigned but due of the cheque case, i was in jail when my visa expires. Our HR Manager told me to go Al Awir Immigration but I am scared that they may put me again in jail and send me back home, please advice me what to do, where to go and how to remove the absconding case.Many thanks & God bless

I have exactly the same case as you marie. I've overstayed while waiting for new visa. My previous company refuses to lift the case, even though I told them I'll pay all the expenses. My passport is in immigration abu dhabi. I'm willing to pay fine and my own ticket. I'm really worried if they might put me to jail. It's been less then a month of overstaying after 30 days grace period. If anyone knows what to do and how to help, please suggest anything. Thank you

After my visa cancellation my employer sent my passport to immigration office. So I even had no choice. I didn't see my passport 2 month. Cannot leave the country, cannot do new visa. To get a lawyer is very expensive in this country, don't know how can I get out. And how is it even possible to put absconding case on the person who didn't have passport all this time?

Right now you can go to immigration office and write complaint about it. Also comunicate with your embassy. I have nothing else to suggest anymore. But if I find out how to get out, and I will find it, I will let you know. Keep strong and good luck!

i hope so too if you dont clear your case with your employer be prepared to be held by immigration .... pay your overstay penalty...and have a 2 days scary detention in immigration b4 you are deported u will also provide your own ticket they will not let u go if you dont pay the penalty have your ticket and for your info they will not provide you food and no one outside can even bring you one. they will sometimes provide u a meal for one person that u will share with the rest of the detain sometimes 5 of u will share a one meal... u will also be ban for life along with the other GCC countries.

So it seems you have not sort out your problem... if your sponsor will not lift your absconding case you have no other choice but turn yourself in with immigration. The moment you go to immigration or if the police will catch you they will detain you and hopefully in 2 days time they will deport you.

is there a chance that my absconding case will be lifted by my x-employer who filed it?when I went to immigration, an immigration officer checked in the system my name when i given my passport copy to them, he said i dont have any problem with immigration, in their system it's showing only my ban from labor..what does this mean?does this mean I dont hve a case?

--- Jan 23, 2014 ---

marie8347, did you experience this personally?if you have things with you will they allow you to use it when you are detained? like clothes, food, mobile?

lovely01 ,

if you don't have an absconding case in immigration then go to labor and inquire from them so they might be able to help u out there as they will schedule u to meet with your sponsor.... I was detain in the airport immigration when i was going out of dubai i have already check-in my luggage when i presented my passport in the passport control thats the time they ask me to go to the immigration area and from there they detain me i was not able to take my flight. The one you carry like your hand carry luggage and mobile they will not confiscate it u can used it.

Hi guys, It's been hard living with the same case... Is that true that if ever we get deported we cannot work in any other GCC countries?

Is it true that we could no longer work in any GCC countries if we get deported?

It depends on the officer you will deal with. If the Officer reports it to the Police, you will really be in jail until the day of your departure. However, there are some people who were not detained because the Immigration Officer did not report it. My advice: "Better be careful."

For the payment, you will only need to pay the overstay fee and nothing more.

Hi po, anyone can give some an advice, my friend is terminated from company since March 2014 and when the company cancel his visa it was rejected due to bank filed a case on him, so since April till date he was in and out from the jail to serve and fix so that he will be canceled from previous employer and can start processing visa from new employer. He found out in the report from Police Dubai that he has absconding case from previous employer..As per Labour Law the company cannot file an absconding case if they know the whereabouts of the person and if it is jail..So please advise if you have same case with my friend or he will deported because he is in Jail? or he can still be out and files a complain from MOL against the company.

Re: How To Drop An Absconding Case 96 days ago
Why is there an absconding case if you completed your contract and cancelled your visa after completing your contract. You should file a case against your employer that he wrongfully placed an absconding case and that you have done nothing wrong. Do you have proof that you didn't abscond. Like salary statements for two years, showing that you worked for two years and hence completed your contract and didn't abscond?

Good day everyone.

I was working in a super market since May 2010, i work as cleaner. My cntract is unlimited. I finished my first 3 years contract. April 2013 i renew my another 2 year contract. April 2014 this year i went back home. And sadly didnt able to come back. I send email to Mol thez told me my cancelation is on process. Now i ask our branch sec. She told me i haue absconding case.

I Was calling our HR they just told me to wait. My cancelation will be finish October.

As i read dubai law online, this absconding case depends on care to case basis.

Im confuse in my case, should i get that banned?

And if so can i go other emirates like fujeira even as visit visa.?

Please help me in my quiry. I ask a lot of people but im stil confuse.

Thank you!

Re: How To Drop An Absconding Case 91 days ago
From what I heard, an absconding case can't be filed against someone who's out of UAE. So you'll want to find out that. Also, you already completed more than three years with your employer, so you shouldn't get a permanent ban. I think at most they can place a 6-month no entry. During that time, you may be able to enter on visit visa but can't get a work visa. However, if a permanent ban is placed (such as blacklisting) then you won't be able to enter any of the emirates on visit or work visa. Do find out about this. And try to reason with your company so that they won't cause you any problems and will simply cancel your visa without ban. good luck
