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
