This ensures everyone is held accountable for a breach of any law.

The UAE immigration travel ban is basically a restriction from crossing the country’s borders, whether by entering, re-entering or exiting or via any means of transport until certain requirements have been met to lift the ban.

The travel ban could be imposed for several reasons, such as an ongoing crime investigation, violation of immigration laws, unpaid financial debts and more.
