Dubai expat’s visa case goes viral on Twitter – News

Dubai Police responds to expat’s tweet.

A Dubai expat’s plea regarding his passport being taken away from him and being kept as a collateral against a bank loan has gone viral on Twitter

According to Jahir Sarkar’s tweets to the Dubai Police, he said that he had been brought to Dubai by an Egyptian and got his visa stamped for a period of two years. It was after getting the visa stamped that the man took a loan for Jahir, but took all of the money instead.

The Egyptian also placed Jahir’s passport as a collateral/guarantee against the bank loan. Jahir also told Dubai Police that his UAE visa had expired more than a year ago and that he was grave trouble because of the situation that he was caught in.

Dubai Police responded to man’s plea by reaching out to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation in UAE.

The Ministry has asked Sarkar to give them an elaborate explanation about his problem and confirm the fact as to whether his passport has been held by his employer, and that he can raise a complaint in such a case.

The Dubai Police also thanked Jahir Sarkar for reaching out to them.
