Bankruptcy and Visas

1511 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Elphaba
Due to a series of unfortunate events I am in a place whereby I am considering declaring myself bankrupt.

I have a job offer lined up in Dubai but before I start filling out the paperwork, I wanted to find out the repercussions of bankruptcy on my visa application to Dubai - it would be highly embarassing for the new employer to discover this through a declined visa!

The debt I have is not through loans, credit cards, mortgages etc..and once I have wiped the slate clean in England, I will be able to support myself financially.

Any help that can be provided regarding the visa, opening bank accounts in Dubai etc would be most gratefully received.

Many thanks in advance,

Thank you so much for your help. I only found this forum today and it has helped beyond belief, or any lawyer I have spoken to!
I am only 25, so not too old for a fresh start, and I think this might be the best route!
Once again, thank you so much - I will sleep much better tonight knowing that with my job offer, I can proceed! Take care, Natasha
You also need to bear in mind that debt is taken very seriously in the UAE. One bounced cheque can land you in jail, so you must handle your finances very carefully.
