I am in the process of resigning and not working my full notice in KSA. HR tell me that I will get a 'runaway status' that bans me from all employment in the GCC. Is this true? I have been accepted in the UAE for a role and am a little worried it may fall through. Any help is greatly appreciated,

As far as I'm aware, the ban should only apply in Saudi Arabia, and not in other GCC countries. However, as this is quite a serious issue I'd recommend consulting your local UAE and/or Saudi Arabia embassies to double check the laws surrounding this.
