No dont give them your passport. Its yours, if you are already in the UK then no need to worry.

Might get a letter from Morarity Law etc but not much will happen.

 

How much did you leave?

You should write (post letters and not emails) to Dubai Banks simply providing your UK address, saying that due to personal circumstances you are now resident in the UK and they can send any communications to the UK address.

 

In the letters don't admit to owing any debt, as you don't need to confirm that and at some stage in the future, the letter might be used to evidence that you admitted to owing a debt.

 

Dubai I think has a 10 year limtations period for personal debts, so it is possible for the Dubai Bank or the debt owner to enforce the debt in a Court 10 years from the last date of repayment or written admission that you owe the debt.

 

A UK Court may hear a foreign debt case, so don't ignore threats from a UK Solicitors acting for the Dubai Bank, that they will be issuing a UK Court claim. If you receive such a letter, you need to take action and should ask for advice.

 

What are your current financial circumstances ?  Could you negotiate a full and final settlement of the Dubai debts ?

See advice above but worth noting do NOT of course set foot there again (at least whilst this is still owing) as if they file a police case you'll be arrested at the airport.  Same if you transit through, so worth keeping that in mind.

Why would you think you could not do so ?

 

Visits to US are subject to US entry rules.

 

If you have a debt owing in an Islamic country such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, they have some court registration system, which may mean that it is noted when you attempted to visit a Middle Eastern country . You may then be stopped at the border and possibly detained while the debt issue is dealt with.

Of course, you can visit anywhere except gulf countries, make sure any flights you take do not have connections in gulf countries either.... avoid them until it is resolved.
