Now there’s an easy way to check if your financial status could prevent you from leaving Dubai.
Dubai Police have launched a new website where residents can see if they have travel bans because of financial criminal cases against them in the emirate.
Brigadier Khalid Nasser Al-Razzouqi, Director General of the Police’s Department of Artificial Intelligence, said: “This service allows the public to inquire about their criminal cases in financial cases registered at the Dubai Police stations.”
The free-to-use service can also be accessed through the Dubai Police app and means people no longer have to visit a police station to enquire about their status.
People can receive travel bans for defaulting on debts, which are then flagged up at the airport and can stop you from travelling.
Check if you have a travel ban at dubaipolice.gov.ae or download the Dubai Police app on Android or iOS. You’ll need your Emirates ID too.
