GCC BAN and Filipino Expats (New Rule 2016)

Welcome to UAE LABOURS free Community Blog
Gulf Countries witnessed the Affability and kindness of Filipinos migrants, they are really complaisant in behavior and counting pleasantness in society, but on other side the ratio of Labour Law Violations by Filipino workers  are increasing day by day.

After thousands of criminal offenses the Philippine overseas Employment Administrator announced that any Filipino who have been deported from any member of GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) will be ban from entering any other GCC country.

The Philippine overseas employment Administrator Chief HANS LEO CACDAC said that Qatar’s Ministry of Interior has issued a circular stating workers who have been deported or cancelled from any GCC country by violating Labour Law or for running away from sponsor/Employers or Company will be denied entry by all other GCC Countries.

HANSLEO CACDAC said GCC members also have a current aggrement to disallow foreign workers who were deported or cancelled for being involved in criminal offenses from entering other GCC countries.

As per Ministry of Interior the circular is in accordance with the resolutions of the Secretary General of the GCC and the activation of the Security link among all GCC Countries that any illegal offense or  violation of Labour Law Regulations  in one of the GCC countries will be treated  as a violation of all other GCC country.

Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and Oman compose the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

The Philippine overseas employment Administrator Chief HANS LEO CACDAC said the GCC hoped the measure will reduce cases of runaways and ensure Labour market stability in Gulf region.

  9. Hi,

    I am pleased to see this open forum that I know could help me reduce the pressure through my nerves. I left Dubai in 2014 with 2 months remaining on my employment contract. I came back in Dubai last 2016 and looked for an employment again. I was hired and they told me that I was absconded by my previous employer.Is it a completed abscond case? Was it paid off by not entering Dubai in 2 years or equivalent to a year ban? How will it work, can my present company give me an employment visa? Will this abscond stamped on my papers be a hindrance for me to build a career in UAE again? Please help me with your reliable answers. Thank you!

  12. Hi sir
    I came to Dubai in 2005 with employment visa and I worked for one year in my company and I ran away from my company because of my salary was too low and I worked for outside about 10 months and UAE government put amnesty in 2007 and I didn’t have my passport with me and I went back to my home country with an emergency passport( which is 3 months validity) and I continued my studies and again I wanted to come back to UAE and my relatives applied for visit visa in 2011 and it was rejected they said I have a life time ban. But I didn’t do any illegal activity in UAE the only thing I ran away from my company.
    Then i came to Saudi Arabia in 2011 with employment visa and still i have been working in Saudi Arabia since 2011
    Sir my question is I want to resign my present job and I come back to Saudi Arabia again with new employment visa
    Is there any problem if I comeback to Saudi Arabia? Because I heard some news that if I have a life time ban in UAE then the GCC (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar) will not allowed to enter any of GCC
    Sir I look forward your kind response
