Unpaid loan and credit card in termination

Hello,
Yes, any gcc country member has the right to extradite anyone accused of breaking their laws. I was too in your husband's situation, but in my case I never moved. I accumulated quite a debt (caused by my sudden termination from work and freezing pf my accounts due to late iqama renewal), and the bank threatened to hand my file to the Saudi credit bureau, which have the authority to have people arrested. My card had expired. I found work and negotiated with the bank, and they agreed to receive monthly installememts of my debt until it was done, and that's what I did.
I'm afraid to say there is no way out of this. Of your plan is to to stay in the GCC, I recommend you find a way to pay back the debt.

Good luck. 🍀

And yes, they can ban your husband from travel, and even have his accounts frozen.

I know someone personally who was put in prison for 2 years for not paying his debt. After his release, he was forced to pay back the debt and a fine.

What is the meaning of loan insurance.? And how do the bank in ksa recover the money when someone deflaults

Hello  I was reading your post about going to umrah while owing money to the Saudi government. I have to same issue and I’m going to Imran tomorrow. Please tell me what happened when you arrived in Saudi?

Hi All,

I would like to know on what basis bank will file a police complaint and upto for how much amount they can file a case. I am having around 25k unpaid amount with 3 banks including CC cards and loan. The upaid loan from saudi will effect to any other GCC countries? Will they stop at immigration in other GCC? I am just going through all the threads and forums but didn't get any concrete answer for this query. Now there is a new implementation in UAE to provide "Good conduct certificate" for past five years from home country or the countries that you have been worked for. So if i apply for police clearance certificate from UAE to Saudi, is there any issue? How to get the information online whether i have any cases filed against me?

Please let me know your views so that it will very helpfull for many people

just sharing...
i have a friend who works before in UAE. Then he went on vacation to Philippines. Until he decided not to come back to UAE. He had personal loans and credit card in UAE. Then, he works in Manila. After one year working. He received an offer to KSA. He flies to KSA via UAE airline (not sure what airline). They landed to UAE and there will be a transit and change of plane. While he is going to transit...He saw his name like someone who's arriving passenger. They know that he's coming. The immigration officers ask him what is his name. Then, he was put on HOLD in the airport. They call the bank who put him in the watchlist. He's charge for the loans. i think he stay there for one week. Until he make a promissory note that he will pay it Riyadh. He was release and travelled to Riyadh. It was a tragic experience.

unpaid loans and credit cards. just sharing...base on my experience.
i worked for almost 20 years in Saudi Oger Ltd.
i have a bank loan and credit card...unfortunately Saudi Oger Ltd. officially CLOSED.
i transferred to other company.
The Saudi Hollandi Bank (Al Awwal) filed a complain to Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Interior (Jawassat) put my Iqama to Service HOLD. Meaning, no transactions, no visa...etc. and also put me on travel ban for 10 years. Wow..!!!
Thanks GOD i'm able to pay all my loans and credit cards. Now i already renewed my iqama.

Always check your Absher...check if there's Generalization report under your iqama number or residence number.

i experienced it too...they put me on HOLD and travel ban for 10 years.

i will go for vacation next month and I have still pending CC payment. They keep calling me to pay and they said they will release a travel ban for me and not renewing my iqama? it this possible to catch me in the Riyadh airport immigration? I am worried..... please help!!! thanks a lot...

Good day !!
I have some issue regarding for loan issue.
I have loan in bank here is KSA but my concern what if my company give force termination or end of contract because of saudization program ? My question is the company pay my remaining balance to loan or what.

Thank you for the answer.

normally if you are terminated by your company. you will get bank clearance first before they will issue a final exit visa for you.

i experienced the travel ban for 10 years....and stop services for the iqamas. better clear this issues for your betterment.

The company will not pay your loan, the bank can't force the company to pay unless the loan was given to you based on papers they issued to the bank as a guarantor of the loan, which I don't think that your company did.

No they will not pay your loan.  They would have only given a letter to the bank pledging to deposit your end of service benefits with the bank should you leave or be terminated.  They are not liable for anything more.

It is a moral obligation that you pay your debt. In Saudi however the courts are almost always on the side of the debitor, I never heard of travel bans or Iqama suspension over late CC payments, blacklisting by SAMA is very common though. I believe that the collecting agency people are trying to intimidate you, don't let the talk go that way, ask the person speaking to be polite and professional, once the person calling starts intimidating or blackmailing just hung up the phone on him, and don't worry they will call again , once the caller agrees to talk in an acceptable manner, you both can discuss the issue in a more constructive way to find a solution.

Your story is kinda weird, are you sure that all of this was done to you because of defaulting on your CC payments, I know a bunch of people who didn't pay their credit cards and they travel and come back and live normal life. They are blacklisted by SAMA, yes. But thats about it!

unpaid loan.....SAMA....
Credit card....SIMAH...

it happened to me...they freeze my iqama Services and 10 years travel ban....from Hollandi Bank.
luckily i paid it already...bank removed my case at MOJ....and MOJ ...removed my stop services and travel ban.

thanks!
