We lived in dubai for 2 years on a working visa but got stuffed about by company after new contract was offer so we decided not to return after the summer vacation. We didn't owe the company any money or any loans to the bank...we cleared all our bills too. But the problem now is that the company needs to cancell our visas and require our passports to do so...I don't know whether this is a wise thing to do post it from Australia... company now threatens to list us as absconda!!! we never wish to work in dubai but would love to visit friends there. Can anyone offer any advice pls. Is it possible for us to return on a tourist visa?
