Default Alcohol Rules ...

Federal law makes it a crime to consume or purchase alcohol without a licence, whether a person is a tourist or a resident.

Tourists as well? think they are a bit confused?

I rather liked the article.


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.

Yet last year, more than 140 million litres of alcohol were consumed – enough to fill 50 Olympic-size swimming pools – according to a report issued by a London-based market research company.

Per capita, UAE residents consumed 28.2 litres of alcoholic drinks in 2010. In 2007, the most recent data available, US residents consumed about 22.5 litres per capita.

"The UAE has a zero-tolerance policy on alcohol consumption, but these guidelines are left to police to enforce, according to Chief Justice Ahmad Saif of the Dubai Criminal Courts of First Instance. "

They seemed to have removed the reference to the US alcohol consumption figure, they probably felt the fact that the UAE had a higher figure portrayed it in a negative light.

Someone has probably been sacked for publishing the lower US figures as we debate the issue!
