As a Muslim country the UAE implements Sharia law which prohibits the purchase and consumption of alcohol.
However, with the high number of non-Muslim expats in the country, the UAE Government makes a concession by allowing non-Muslims over the age of 21 to purchase and consume alcohol with a valid license obtained through the Police. Non-Muslims who possess a valid liquor permit may also transport alcohol from one emirate to another, but the amount should be for personal use only.
Licences can be applied at the shops.
