Filipinos whose Emirates ID and/or passports were forcefully taken from them by their employers have the right to report the incident to the authorities.

The UAE’s Federal Law no. 9 of 2006 specifically stipulates that the owner of the Emirates ID should have the said card with her/him at all times.

“As per the executive regulations of the Federal Law no. 9 of 2006 relating to the population register and the ID card, a cardholder should carry their cards at all times and present it whenever requested according to law. Companies are not allowed to withhold the Emirates ID cards of their employees or their customers and visitors. In case of violation, cardholders should refer the case to the judicial authorities.”

Individuals working in the UAE also have the right to keep their passports to themselves as it should not be with their employers in the first place.

Lt. Col. Al Neyadi, during the First Filipino Community Forum, shares that individuals can use the “We Are All Police” app for such incidents as well.

“What we need for this program is just information – who did it, what was the crime, and where it happened. Anything you know, just contact us,” shares Al Neyadi.
