Please be informed that the act of writing a cheque, which would eventually be dishonored is considered a crime. If the criminal case is registered within the Emirate of Dubai, the Prosecution may pass a decision to punish the accused with a fine should the amount of the dishonored cheque not exceed AED200,000/- Such rules may also be applicable in other Emirates subject to the discretion of the Prosecution. The exact amount of fine is subject to the discretion of the Prosecution and the value of the bounced cheque. Moreover, the opposite party may still file a civil case to claim the outstanding amount. Failure to pay outstanding liabilities can, among others, result in travel restrictions by the court.
