3. After you click on that tab, click on 'My Cases' to see the cases against you.

4. You can view the details of each case and 'request' for a cancellation on each case. You will be required to fill out a form and fill in your details at this step.

5. Finally, you may be required to make a payment on the basis of your case.

Additional information

According to the Ministry of Justice, this service could take up to five working days to process.

While filing the application, you could be required to provide documents that support your case for the cancellation of a travel ban.

New system

A first-of-its-kind system in the UAE and the region instantly tracks all judicial enforcement decisions and cancels them after the required payment of dues.

Recently, the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department adopted a new system that tracks the payment status, and once the respondent has completed the payment, it cancels the original decision. After electronic approval, this is then forwarded to the relevant authorities.

In the case of travel bans being imposed due to non-payment, respondents can download a copy of the cancellation decision through the smart app. They can then proceed with travel procedures and show the soft copy if required.
