Kelan ko po bang magbayad para makuha yung passport ko sa agency na hindi ako napaalis within the expected period of time?

Last December 2018, nahired po ako as a teacher bound to Riyadh, KSA sa isang international school na ang involved pong agency ay Bright International Manpower Agency. They said po that i'll be leaving in less than 1 month, kasi nakaready na daw po visa. Nakapagmedical na po ako(1st phase) and vaccine na ako po lahat ang gumastos. Nagprocess na rin po ako ng biometrics for visa processing. Iistamp na lang daw po yung ready visa, yun ang supposedly ay sunod na process kaso inabot daw po ng expire. Kaya kinailangan pong magrequest ulit ng panibagong visa ang employer. They made me wait for months, since January pa up to now, pero ang nasasabi lang nila ngayon ay wala pa daw balita sa visa, di p rin daw naayos kasi may bago daw policy sa Saudi. May plan na kong mag-apply sa ibang agency, kasi nga ilang months na nila kong pinag-iintay sa visa pero up to now, wala pa din. Kailangan ko ng kunin passport ko, may babayadan pa po ba dapat ako given na ganito ang nangyari sa application ko sa agency na yun?
Thanks po in advance. God bless po.

If talagang up to now pinaprocess naman talaga lang nila however may mga delay kailangan po ninyong magbayad ng refund sa kanilang nagastos provided may maipakita silang mga resibo po sa mga nagasto. Kaya lang if they have stopped the processing of your visa for whatever reason na hindi mo naman kasalanan pwede po ninyo itong makukuha at hindi po obligado na magbayad sa mga nagastos. Kaya mas mabuting maverify muna sa POEA ang nasabing agency if registered po ba para baka illegal recruiter lang ito.Kung ayaw ibigay pwede po kayong magpatulong sa POEA officials para makipag coordinate sa nasabing agency or pwede po kayong magpagawa ng demand letter sa isang lawyer na kunin ninyo ang inyong passport kung ayaw po nilang ibigay ito.
