Dubai: If you’re one of those hundreds of borrowers who once fled the UAE for failing to settle mounting loans, the doors are still open for you to come back and start your expatriate life again – without landing behind bars.
According to legal experts in the UAE, there are still ways to secure another employment opportunity in the emirate, even if you’ve once been a runaway.
The risk of getting arrested at the airport, however, is high – especially if there is still a police case pending in court or an arrest warrant is waiting - so it’s better to plan your return.
Back in 2009, when the global economy fell into a recession, a significant number of expatriates who racked up huge debts running into several hundreds and thousands of dirhams, absconded without repaying their banks or lenders. A lot of these expatriates now want to return to the UAE, to seek employment opportunities.
Returning Dubai expats who think they have a police case filed against them are strongly advised to do some research before traveling to Dubai, or even passing through the airport.
