  21. Interesting UAE LABOURS! i have a question, what if the employee finished his contract to his previous company, and within his grace period he find a new employer, but his previous employer wants him to exit or show his visa from other employer, but the new employer failed to issue his visa on time because of holidays or the processing is delayed and that time his previous employer filed an absconding case against the employee ang now he is banned to emirates? He is willing to pay his overstay fines that is why he goes to tasheel to ask his fines then he got the total then he goes to the airport to go home because of that case, one immigration officer told him that he is runaway? Amd told him he needs to pay his fines, when he got to pay his fines the other officer told him that there is no fines to pay? What is the meaning of that UAE LABOURS. he is finished contract and they files for absconding case????? Are they human? Why cant they wait until the new sponsor give his visa? He is willing to pay for fines! Please answer this UAE LABOURS for all to clear some minds with same case! To help them also! Have some conscience you rich people.
