Before you go out for a drink
Although the region is predominantly Muslim, some rules have been relaxed to accommodate the wishes of the growing community of foreigners in the region. One of these rules involves drinking alcohol. In Dubai, visiting foreigners are allowed to drink as long as they do so in licensed bars, hotels and restaurants.
For people living in Dubai, however, a liquor licence is required. Applying for a liquor licence is a relatively straightforward process. Besides filling up the required application form, applicants only need to submit a few documents and pay the 270 AED processing fee. Once done and you have received your licence, you are now free to drink for up to a year using the same licence.
For all the female tourists in currently in Dubai or for those who have plans to explore the city, be sure to take careful note of these regulations so you can enjoy all of what the city has to offer.
