In my experience, yes you would receive a ban automatically from the Ministry of Labour. I think the ban used to be GCC wide, not sure about this though, however I am pretty sure you would be banned from working in Dubai also.
I have heard that you can pay to lift the ban, however when I went through this and looked at it, no one could confirm this so I am a little suspicious as to whether it is possible.
Luckily, I ended up joining a freezone company and, as they have different laws to onshore companies, their residence permit application does not need approval from Ministry of Labour hence the ban is not enforced.
I would say look into things and consider your move very carefully as it can be an extremely stressful and unpleasant experience.
Hope this helps......
