I have a history of overstay in the U.S. I am currently trying to apply jobs in UAE and Canada. Would the record of me staying in the US and being out of status affect the visa gaining process of UAE (Dubai to be exact) or Canadian visa? I am also concerned that I would get denied the entry to UAE or Canada because of it. I can't seem to find any info online about this matter so please help.
Again, it is a huge issue, even in situations when it does not, outright, create grounds of inadmissibility. However, none of it applies to getting visa to any country other than the USA. for those countries you should talk to lawyers there.

It is doubtful that the UAE or Canada would have access to your US immigration records.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Whether your prior overstay of your period of admission in the United States would affect your eligibility for a visa to work in a separate country, such as the U.A.E. or Canada, would depend on the immigration laws of those countries. Please contact an immigration lawyer in the U.A.E. or in Canada for information and assistance regarding this question.
