No company is allowed to hold your passport..thats the rule here. So may be they just came to know about this rule and are giving back the passports.

A passport is an official government document issued to you by the government of your own country. It is illegal for anyone to take it away from you. If someone holds your passport against you will report it to your embassy. It would make things interesting for the sponsor!

There were this cases in Libya and Kuwait earlier of sponsors having fled themselves and nobody having a clue where the passports of the workers are so maybe people learning from the past experiences

Because they are not supposed to keeping their employees' passports... and yet, there are still those stubborn ones who do not follow this rule..
