Yes it’s illegal to retain someone’s passport if employer retain passport they can pay fine for holding passport. If u want to get your passport back go to police station. But some of the employers doesn’t follow UAE rules
Don’t go to police station.
Go to court directly. Police will not entertain unless there is a letter from court.
Same thing happened to me.
There is no fee. Only 100 for typing center and another 50. I forgot.
But you go to court early, 8am. Go to reception. They will give you a form to follow.
It’s an easy process. Once you get the letter, police will escort you and get your passport from employer
