My contract will end May 23,2017 and my visa expired on May 29,2017,now i have talked to my boss that when my visa expired i will go with him to the immigration to  cancel  my passport and he said no need because his company will be the  one to do it and his company will hold my passport until i will found a new sponsor. 

1. is it right to surrender my passport to my employer to cancel without going him to the immigration?


2.Is it right that his company will hold my passport till i found new sponsor or after cancellation i can have my passport back?


3.Can i leave his house on d night of May 29 since that will be my last day of work?


4. Do i have right if i tell my boss to meet in immigration to cancel me from there if he will insist that the company will hold my passport until i found a new sponsor?

Please i want to know what is the best steps that i’m going to do in this situation of mine.

First of all i think you are working as a maid .so no connection to labour department .Until you exit or change your job your responsibility is with them .after visa expiry cancel immediately .you can stay 28 days after visa expiry or cancellation which ever come first .It is very difficult to get a job in 28 days and change visa .So better arrange a oman vsa and 3 months UAE vsa from any travel agency ,exit to oman and come back.If you are 100% sure that the new company can process an employment visa immediately in 28 days then no need to exit you can change here itself.

is it ok if i will.not give my passport to my boss? coz he will not give it back to me unless i can find a new sponsor.should i kept my passport with me and go to immigration with him or i let my new sponsor to contact him if i found a new one.

I think you are not allowed to go to immigration with him he has to go there himself so you have to give him you passport.

I dont know! some of the people here in our place told me that i go to immigration with him to cancel my passport because there  is a papers also needs to be signed up as proved that i completely finished my works with him,if thats the case that i’m not allowed,does it means that i allowed his company to hold my passport until i found a new sponsor so they can turn over my passport directly to my new employer?it confused me actually.

Nothing should confuse you,  IF you have offer letter from your new employer it will be enough if not your under his responsibility don’t agrave your situation and try to find against him
