I'm comfused here.

What visa are we talking about? A visit visa? If so, there can't be an absconding charge as you can't work on a visit visa. The "sponsor" would open themselves for legal problems if they tried to make a case. They would be charged with illegally employing someone

Travel Agencies can "sponsor" visit visas for people not from the 33 visa-on-arrival countries (much like me "sponsoring" the visit visa for relatives etc).
I have absolutely no idea how this can be sorted, but hopefully someone would be able to advise. I know that there are fines involved usually

Only way that has worked for individuals I know/met, is they got picked up, went to jail, uae courts see their is no way the family has ANY money to pay so they wont ever recoup anything and by keeping them in jail, the uae government are not getting anything but costing themselves, and then they get sent home after few months.

Staying in the uae, doing anything but illegal work, isnt going to happen at this point.
