Travel bans in the UAE can be imposed for various reasons, including outstanding liabilities, criminal cases, disputes, or violations of immigration laws. If you fail to pay three consecutive or six non-consecutive credit card or loan installments, it may be considered an event of default, potentially leading to a travel ban.

The UAE Government advises: "Before planning travel, you should check and resolve any issues that might stop you at the airport immigration counters. If necessary, you may seek the assistance of a lawyer or contact the nearest immigration/police office in your area for advice."

Abu Dhabi
