I wanna move soon - Employer making it hard to let me go😞

Hi everyone, I'm currently here in Al Morabaa Riyadh and working for a royal family.

I just wanna ask because it seems like my employer doesn't give me updates for my exit here in Riyadh.

I gave her a notice  last June and asked me to wait for a new employee and turn over my assigned task.

I told her that I need to go back to Philippines on the last week of September as I am preparing for my new job in other country. I'm a bit worried because there's instances that some employers make it really hard for us to leave this country.

I wanna go back home and maybe I must buy my own ticket. And she never hand me my own passport. 😞
