Re: HOW TO REMOVE IMMIGRATION BLACKLIST
Aug 26, 2013
I am Lebanese national and was residing in Dubai for the past 13 years.
I am contacting you today as I have been facing a problem with getting back into the UAE after I cancelled my residency from Media City in Dubai. I am not sure what the problem is and when did it start so i allow me please to porvide you with a brief about what happened.
The background of my story is as follows:
I started working in the country on a residency from The ministry of labour and had no problems from the year 2001.
In 2009 until May 2012 i was working on a residency from the Free Zone of Media City until i quit my job and cancelled my residency and left the country.
I came back on a visit visa that was rejected at that time when it was applied for from Dubai and it was the first time i heard that my name can be blacklisted although nothing was confirmed and when i applied my tourist visa through Emirates from Lebanon after the rejection from Dubai my visit visa was granted and i entered the country in June 2012.
I stayed in the country and applied for a visa extension as the company that i was supposed to work for has issues with finshin their necessary papers to start their work and be able to sponsor me.
Finally i found a job through an old frined of mine who owned a company inside Dubai and no the Free Zone and when we applied for my work permit, the next day i was infomred that my application was rejected by security .
Duirng that time, there was a huge issue in Lebanon and the ties were very tense with the Gulf Countries as on the same day of my application, some lebanese people decided to kidnapp a toursit from the Gulf and the GCC countreis were all alert to this problem.
i have been told my many people at that time that the rejecton came because of this issue and i should try to apply again.
I overstayed in the country on my visit visa for 20 days as i was very confused and did not know what to do as i had a car and house and all my life was there in the country that i loved and lived in for 13 years.
I paid my over stay fines at the airport and i left the country thinkin that i would be back.
As i listened to everyone's advice and at the same time i could not believe that this was happending to me as i did nothing i applied again for my work residency on companies inside Dubai and all my applications would get delayed for months and then get rejected.
Alot of my frineds checked if i had a problem with the Labor Office thinking i might have a ban but this was not the case.
I also applied for tourist visa from the UAE and it got delayed and stuck in the system and then rejected. Also the visit visa that we tried to apply for from Lebanon through Emirates was delayed for three weeks and then rejected.
so basicly the problem started to be more and more clear that something is wrong when all my attmepts to come back to the UAE were rejected.
Not knwoing what is the problem and knwoning that i did not do anything that would cause such misfortune alot of my friends who had people working in different positions started asking whether my names had any problems with any of the UAE Govrenmental systems.
Everyone came back to confirm that i have no police records, nothing in imigration and nothing in labour office and that there is nothing against me.
I had a problem with NBD Bank in 2011 regarding some problems i had with my car and there was two cases against me one for bounced check and the other for confiscation of my car as i had many unpaid fines on it.
One of my friends who is following up on my issues in Dubai ( she has a general POA from me which i issued to her before i left the country on 15th September 2012) as she is also a lawyer informed me that for some reason the bank failed to provide me with two release letters for the above mentioned two cases so my name was stuck in he system with Al Rifaa Police Station alough in that same system it was mentioned that the case has been closed.
She managed to take a release paper from the bank and clear my name from the system of the Police in the hope that was the reason for my rejection.
I have never hurt anyone in my life and it is devastating for me to get to know about this!
Out of desepertaion and heart break as you can imagine, my whole life is in Dubai .
I hope that you can help me solve my problem as my life depends on this and i would appreciate your assistance in whatever way possible.
If you further details please me know.
