Free liquor licence for tourists in Dubai

Travellers in Dubai can now apply for a free 30-day liquor licence, reports Gulf News.

The licence will allow non-Muslim travellers over the age of 21 to purchase liquor from the outlets of Mercantile and Marketing International (MMI), the sales and marketing subsidiary of Emirates Group.

Prior to this, visitors to Dubai could only buy and drink alcohol in licenced venues such as hotels, restaurants and clubs.

The MMI website, on a page dedicated to licences, has a special section for travellers, which provides the basic steps to obtain a licence.
