Check out Etihad's service called Crystal Cargo based at AD airport - not sure on Emirates.

good luck in Morocco

Actually they are only supposed to mark the cheque 'final salary' if they have provided you with a salary letter enabling you to get a loan. If they haven't done this they should not be marking the cheque. Some companies do anyway as they are either too stupid to know about this or they are *****s (or in some cases both)!

I'm waiting for my cheque from the company I left end of Feb so will find out soon which category they fall into.

BB - Good luck in Morocco! Surely a hell of a lot better than here..

Congratulations!

Yep, my bank account is still happily operating too. That said, I'll be taking it offshore as soon as I get a new job...

Seconded.

Am Bloody Hopeless at keeping up on this bored, but have been 'lurking' on and off over 6 years and enjoyed your posts. Particularly when you took 'em all on on when you first joined! Good luck in Morocco.

And congrats, good luck and we'll miss you xx
Checked at a branch of ADCB yesterday: no connection between visa cancellation / final payment and your bank account.

Checked with my HR: same.

Given my intimate knowledge of the general level of service and knowledge of the banking sector here (although ADCB have been good) and HR departments, I'm still not taking the risk. Final payment in cash. (There are casinos in Morocco...)

Big difference betwen freezing a bank account and closing it. Accounts can be maintained if someone is not resident, but it is usual practice for most banks to freeze an account temporarily in receipt of a 'final salary' payment. I'm repeating myself, as some posters appear to have misread what I said earlier.
