Default Negative Balance in EmiratesNBD account

I had a brief working stay back in 2007-2008 in Dubai. I had a bank account with Emirates Bank which has now become Emirates NBD. I rang to find out the status of my account and have been told it is 1278AED overdrawn. The account has been placed as dormant.

I am looking to return to Dubai and start a new job in July. Am I in any danger of getting detained at the airport? I am sure I had a few dirhams left in the account however I didnt close it since I thought I would return in future. Has anyone been in a similar situation before? What can happen to me?

Have you asked if they have registered a police case against you?? If not, then you'll be fine, but you ought to repay the overdraft.

They probably want proof of who you are. I can help as I have contacts at the bank, but you'll need to contact me off board. (See link below for info & contact details.)

One other thing, I exited the country back to the UK on 2/5/08 and couriered my british passport to my PRO so he could cancel my residency. The residency was cancelled on the 28/10/08 (within 6 months)
