Does administrative deportation include all GCC countries? :
First, let us clarify that the GCC agreement is an Arab regional political, economic, military and security organization made up of six countries and they are: the United Arab Emirates, the kingdom of Bahrain, the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Sultanate of Oman, State of Qatar, and State of Kuwait.
As for the question :whether the administrative deportation from the United Arab Emirates includes all GCC countries or not, this administrative deportation prevents the foreigner from entering the United Arab Emirates only, meaning that he can enter the rest of the GCC countries except the United Arab Emirates from which the administrative deportation decision was issued, the foreigner is not stopped, for example, at the airport of the GCC countries due to his administrative removal from the United Arab Emirates.
The administrative deportation order from the UAE can be cancelled by obtaining a special permission from the director general of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FICA), as per Article 28 of Law No. 6 of 1973 on Entry and Residence of Foreigners.
