Hi,
If you still have your passport and have not been through the visa start process (medical, finger prints etc.) then you are normally free to leave the country.
If you have a return air ticket - then just use it.
Employers are not actually allowed to charge their staff for employment expenses.
Cheers
Steve
P.S. Please don't use text speak on the forum (it is against the rules) - just use explain English, it is much easier to read.

thanks steve for your earnest reply

but i had recently enquired about the same with the pro of a known company in dubai...he told me that unless my visa is stamped i wont be able to leave the country coz the officials will stop me at the immigration. the will require the company to cancel the visa process before i leave without stamping the visa on my pasport.... plz helpppp with a genuine answer coz if i try any thing like what youve said and be busted then ill have to pay a really bad price.. HELPPPP!!!

Why don't you contact the Ministry of Labour and ask? If you google for them, they have telephone numbers, physical addresses, and email IDs mentioned (if I were you, I would not send emails though)

they are unresponsive to my calls
Look, I doubt that anyone here can give you the right answer.

If you have time, go to the MOL office in SHarjah Ministry of Labour

You can also write to this column Topic: On your side - The National

Also, employers cannot ask you to pay for your expenses for visa and flights etc. - that would be illegal unless you have agreed to reimbursing them when you signed a contract with your employer.
