Dubai Tourists – Alcohol Licence requirement in UAE update January 2011

Posted by 7starsdubai on April 2, 2011


Jumeirah boss slams Brit poll branding Dubai ‘unsafe

Dubai 31 Mrach 2011 source Arabian Business

The chairman of Jumeirah Group, the state-backed hotel firm that
operates Dubai’s Burj Al Arab, has spoken out against a poll branding Dubai one
of the least safe tourism destinations.

A poll of British holidaymakers published last week placed
Dubai alongside Mexico, South Africa and Jamaica as countries they feel least
safe in, a result condemned by Gerald Lawless.

“You can go into our hotels now and just do a sample of all
of our guests and ask if you think Dubai is safe and 99.9 percent of our guests
will say; ‘Absolutely, it is one of the if not the safest destinations in the
world,’” Lawless told Arabian Business
on the sidelines of a Dubai event…continue reading

To end the confusion about the Alcohol Licence requirement in UAE please read the Update quoted from the Website www.dubaifaqs.com

Despite what some people may think, alcohol is relatively freely
available in Dubai (a very stark contrast to Saudi Arabia). Almost all 4
and 5 star hotels have restaurants and or bars where alcohol is served,
and many sports clubs have restaurant and bar facilities for example
the Aviation Club, the Country Club.

Alcohol Licence requirement in UAE update January 2011

Whether or not a resident of, or visitor to, the UAE requires an
alcohol licence to drink alcohol has been a common subject of
conversation and confusion in the UAE. As far as we knew, the situation
was as follows:

  • An alcohol licence is permission to drink alcohol rather than permission to buy alcohol (similar to a driving licence).
  • Tourists and visitors to the UAE do not need an alcohol
    licence to drink alcohol in bars, restaurants, and other licenced
    establishments in the UAE
    they cannot obtain one anyway since a UAE
    residence visa is a requirement to obtain an alcohol licence.
  • Visitors
    drinking alcohol in private homes was always a grey area – no one really
    knows if that is (or was) legal or not (update: apparently it’s illegal
    – see below)
    .
  • Expat residents of the UAE need an alcohol licence to be
    allowed to drink alcohol, whether in hotels, restaurants, bars,
    nightclubs; or at home; or at private houses belonging to friends and
    acquaintances.
  • The question of UAE citizens requiring an alcohol licence is
    moot since all UAE citizens are Muslims, and Muslims are not issued
    alcohol licences.

A report in The National on 27 December 2010 clarified the confusion (or confused the clarification) by saying Federal
law makes it illegal to consume alcohol in the UAE without a licence –
whether at home or in a hotel, and this applies to both residents and
tourists, according to the Abu Dhabi-based lawyer Khalid Mustafa.

  • The lawyer gave as an example a situation where a taxi has an accident, and the passengers had consumed alcohol: “The
    police would take them to the police station and test them, if they are
    shown to have drunk alcohol, they would be held on suspicion of
    drinking alcohol.
  • Thus reinforcing the Land-of-Irony image of the UAE – how
    can a tourist drink alcohol legally in the UAE if they cannot obtain a
    licence? The answer (as with many other irony-clad situations in the
    UAE) is that you can’t but don’t worry about it unless you’re very
    unlucky or very stupid.
  • An unnamed judge in Dubai in the same report confirmed the confusion by saying “The licence and the law are confusing,
  • A 24 January 2011 report in The National clarified things even further by reporting an unnamed CID official as saying “If
    I walk into a hotel or bar and I can see that the people drinking are
    Muslims, as a security official, I do not have the right to arrest them.

    And also reporting that Even if a someone were walking in the street
    and was clearly drunk but did not have the alcohol with him and was not
    causing problems, police would not arrest him, the officer said
    .
    Which seems to contradict many anecdotal, and media, reports of people
    who have in fact been arrested while appearing to be drunk in public,
    and in some cases not appearing to be drunk but suspected of having had a
    drink. Be careful out there.
  • However, the report did start off by saying Police will
    not arrest anyone for alcohol violations unless some other crime has
    been committed, despite unambiguous laws on the books, according to a
    top police official in the capital
    . Which by and large seems to sum
    up the situation in the UAE. Drinking alcohol per se won’t get you in
    to trouble, but if you do something else to attract the attention of the
    authorities, or are blatantly drinking or drunk in public, then you
    will probably suffer an alcohol related penalty involving a fine (up to
    AED 5,000?), and/or jail (up to 5 years reportedly), and/or deportation.
