INTERPOL & Police Checks

Police Checks

Parties in the UAE and the wider GCC are increasingly using the criminal justice system and detention of parties as a tool to settle civil disputes. If you believe that you may have had an issue in the past in the UAE, whether it be related to debt, mortgages, civil disputes, immigration, family, visas or criminal accusations, it is important to conduct a thorough police check prior to transiting or returning to Dubai or any of the GCC countries.


INTERPOL notices are International requests of co-operation or alerts, allowing police in member countries to share critical crime-related information. There has been significant increases in the number of red notices issued in the GCC countries. In the case of Red Notices, the persons concerned are wanted by the national jurisdictions for prosecution or to serve a sentence based on an arrest warrant, or court decision. .
