Credit Card Debt while living as an expat in Dubai UAE
Subforums: Currency Transfer, Credit and Debt
Just wondering if anyone knows anything about the laws regarding credit card debt. I had to rack up a couple of credit cards while living as an expat in Dubai for medical reasons. When I couldnt pay it back I just left the country as I had heard storys of people going to jail for being in debt which I wasnt prepared to do.
I havent worked for 1 year and cant work right now so Im just wondering if Im going to get in deep trouble back in New Zelaland if I dont pay this money back tha realisticly I cant do.
Any help/peace of mind appreciated
