Alcohol and the United Arab Emirates: Laws and Facts All Tourists and Residents Should Know

“Drinking or possession of alcohol for UAE residents without a UAE Ministry of Interior liquor permit is illegal and could result in arrest and imprisonment. Alcohol is served in some hotels and sold in a limited number of designated stores. Alcohol may only be purchased from stores by people who hold a liquor license. These licenses are only available to UAE residents and only permit the holder to purchase or consume alcohol in the Emirate, which issued the license (for example, a permit issued in Abu Dhabi is not valid in Dubai). Drinking in public or being intoxicated in a public place is illegal. Offenders may be arrested.”
