They had these sorts of problem in Dubai/UAE with their "guest workers" working on various crazy petro booms before the Dubai bust.

People would show up in Dubai in debt to one or more parties. Their passports were confiscated. They could not leave the country until the debt was paid off, and would be thrown in jail in some cases.

Nice country. Nice culture. Arabs are pigs.
