Default Duty free alcohol allowance-Dubai

Hello,
Two questions please:

1. Can you help me with the duty free alcohol allowance when entering Dubai. There is different information in various websites. We are carrying wine from the UK into Dubai and not buying it in the duty free section at arrivals in the Dubai Airport.

2. We are carrying Israeli Kosher wine from UK to Dubai. We are not Jewish, only that our family in Dubai likes that wine. Do you folks forsee any issues with this assuming we are within duty free the alcohol allowance?

Thank you for your kind insights.

4 litres of spirits/wine per person or 48 x 355ml cans of beer. If you’re carrying wine that’s 5 x 75cl bottles.

Israeli products are prohibited.

I once asked a customs officer at DXB how much I could bring through, and he said, "We don't care."

No guarantee you'll get the same bloke of course.

I carried a total of 8 bottles (6 litres @750ml a bottle) between me and my wife. I went through the green channel and was let through with no questions asked.

You hold a Qatari residency, which is enough to get you stopped at Immigration, and you also want to carry Israeli goods through Customs?

You looking to get your name in the Daily Mail????
