7 Days in Dubai - - EVENTS -

I am work­ing for a lo­cal firm here in the UAE and re­sumed work just to­day from a short va­ca­tion. Re­cently we have re­ceived a sweet email from HR ask­ing to hand over our pass­ports to the com­pany. The mes­sage read: “All em­ploy­ees are re­quired to sur­ren­der/de­posit the ORIG­I­NAL PASS­PORT in the Head Of­fice for Safe­keep­ing. “There­fore, ev­ery­one is ad­vised to hand over im­me­di­ately the orig­i­nal pass­port in the HR Depart­ment from bi­en­nial/ emer­gency Leave or any per­sonal Trans­ac­tion us­ing your pass­port. “On that same day, it will be for­warded to Head of­fice for SAFE­KEEP­ING through our courier. You will then re­ceive an email con­fir­ma­tion from us as a proof that we re­ceived your pass­port. (Stan­dard
