Do not board message at check in

Hello I hope you are doing great and lots of blessings in this holy month of Ramadan. I have a huge problem of being denied to board the plane to Dubai from Kenya despite the fact that I have a valid visit visa issued just a week ago, valid return ticket and my valid passport. This is not the first time it has happened in many occasions where I never get a printed boarding pass at the check in and the message that usually comes states that "do not board contact uae government". And on doing so they respond by saying they only involved in the issue of the visa and not boarding despite the well stated message. I was to travel on 4th of this month and I was denied boarding siting the same problem. The airline have written an email to the concerned departments in Dubai government to no response in a weeks time. Kindly how can you help on this as I have lost money on so many occasions, time and stress that really affects me as I have never been convicted of any crime having lived n worked in Dubai for 6 years and visited later on several occasions. It might be a serious error on the system or just an inhumane act of malice and your help will be highly appreciated. May God bless you and thanks in advance

Thank you for your blessing but unfortunately no one on here can help you.

This site is not connected or affiliated to the Dubai authorities or any airline.

You need to contact UAE immigration directly

best solution can be if you have any friends or relatives in dubai , please ask them to visit immigration office with your passport copy to check if you name is in black list.

I have done that n confirmed that Iam ok n no blacklist and they say Iam ok to visit but the word of mouth alone cannot solve the system issue as they say they don't write or call to the airline it's not their duty. Problem is the airline cannot board me without the UAE gvt approval. As it states exactly contact uae government. It's totally confusing. What should I do then?
