Order online before 12pm for next day delivery…

MMI and African & Eastern have announced a legal home delivery service, which can be ordered online or via WhatsApp.

This will mark the first time that either liquor store has offered a home delivery service. Customers will still need to have a valid liquor license to order online, and tourists will need to have a valid visit visa.

At the moment, you can place an order before 12pm to receive a delivery slot for the next day, although the websites hinted that same-day delivery could be available in the future. Customers will receive an SMS 30 minutes before the delivery is due to arrive.

Deliveries will be subject to a Dhs50 delivery fee, and customers will need to spend a minimum of Dhs250 to use the service. Orders are subject to a 30 per cent Municipality fee and five per cent VAT.

MMI and African & Eastern are known to be rivals in the industry, but shared online a message of union in these ‘unprecedented times…during this Covid19 period’.

Last year, a more relaxed licensing process was introduced for Dubai residents and tourists, allowing them to purchase liquor more easily from MMI and African & Eastern.

It's now much easier to obtain a liquor license in Dubai

Previously the requirements for obtaining a license included an NOC letter from your employer, father or husband, tenancy contract and salary certificate showing earnings of over Dhs3000 per month.

However now all you need to submit your application is your Emirates ID copy, passport copy, visa copy and passport photo. The process is all done online, and you can collect your license from the store once it’s ready.

Tourists can obtain an on-the-spot 30-day renewable license within the stores themself. This license is free and only open to visitors with a valid tourist visa in their passport.

You can get a license from MMI here or African & Eastern here. Remember, you must be over 21 to purchase and consume alcohol.
