Post Passport on Hold


Seeking assistance on this matter. My fiancée was terminated from employment in Dubai for misconduct 2 months ago, employer was asking for a 3000AED fine. They were not able to pay the fine so they were asked to surrender their Emirates ID and their passport. They also did not receive their last month salary due to the said incident. They were asking for their passport back to at least find a part time or other job to pay for the fine however according to the employer he is still waiting for the decision of their other partners. Until now their passport is with the employer waiting for resolution. What can we further do for the employer to return at least his passport or whom can we seek assistance from regarding this matter?

Thank you very much

In this case the concerned person can file a police complaint regarding unauthorized holding of passport by employer. It is good to consult a lawyer in this regard.

I wish to inform you that the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs-Dubai has launched a toll free 'AMER service' for public complaints, suggestions and Inquiries. The 24-hour service offers several communication options, such as toll-free number (voice), fax, e-mail and e-chat. You may contact AMER service and seek guidance.
