Travel bans can be cleared at Abu Dhabi airport

posted on 14/01/2013: 5486 views

Prospective travellers flying through Abu Dhabi who discover they are on a travel ban list due to unpaid fines will soon be able to still catch their flights.

The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) announced the setting up of an ‘Injaz' centre at the Capital's airport, so people banned from leaving the country on the basis of court orders can pay off their fines.

Currently those who only discover their travel ban while at the airport are turned back and must go through a long-winded court process to clear their bans, resulting in missed flights.

The centre is to be a round-the-clock, seven-day service where defaulters, against whom courts have issued arrest warrants or international travel bans, can settle their financial obligations, an informed ADJD source said.

The source said the aim of the centre was to let blacklisted people pursue their travel abroad without restrictions.

The centre will also offer services like handing over photocopies of court verdicts and documents passed down by all courts in the emirate and relaying information about the travel ban. – Khaleej Times
