UAE (and Lebanon) domestic staff passports ‘must not be kept by sponsors’

I recently accompanied a domestic worker to immigration to file a complaint for her friend who is a domestic worker in an abusive situation. While speaking to the immigration officer who was attending to us, I stated that the woman’s passport was taken by the employer. The immigration employee told us that it is “not a problem to keep a maid’s passport, we all do".
