Hi there,

That depends on the reason for your ban. If it's a work-related ban then you should be okay to work in the UAE as it's a separate country to Qatar. However, if the ban is related to criminal charges then the matter becomes more complicated and you may face difficulties.

As far as I'm aware, for overstaying you face a lifetime ban. You should check your status online. Please click here for a guide on how to do that. Once you've confirmed your status, please call your local embassy of the country you were in for information on how to lift the ban.
