Getting a liquor license in Dubai
Tourists can now apply for a temporary liquor license in African + Eastern and MMI stores. All you need to do is present your original passport, fill out a short form and sign an official declaration to state you aren’t a UAE resident, and will obey the UAE’s rules and regulations in regards to alcohol purchase and consumption.
The store will then take a copy of your passport and entry stamp, and issue you with a guideline on responsible drinking in Dubai.
