Have fun but do it responsibly!

Not many of us know that not having an alcohol licence and drinking in Dubai can result in heavy fines and penalties. The process of getting an alcohol licence may seem a tad bit complicated but it’s absolutely the easiest thing you will ever do, given the newest platform introduced by African + Eastern in Dubai recently.


Log on to and get your Licence to safe drinking at the comfort of your home, within no time!

Here is how you can do it:

Apply online on their e- form and make sure you have the following documents ready – Your Passport copy, Visa Copy, Labour contract copy, passport size picture and a copy of your Tenancy contract.


For a more personal experience, there are 15 African + Eastern outlets located all around the city and they are more than happy to help you through the process of getting your alcohol licence hassle free. Here is a link to the store locators around the city –


The last and final step includes getting your licence, which takes about 4 weeks to get processed and reach you after all the documents have been screened and verified. For those who want their packs to be delivered to their doorstep, they have that taken care for you too!! Here is an E- Form you can fill out to get your licence delivered to you within no time


The entire process will cost you AED270 per year, but the good news is that by having this licence you make back all that money in form of vouchers, coupons and deals at various outlets from all around the city. To begin with, you will get a lavish 25% off on your first purchase at any African + Eastern outlet, followed by an AED150 off your total bill at Cargo, Pier 7 and Warehouse at Le Meridien, not to mention the 15% off you can avail at Irish Village and McGettigan’s DWTC and last but not the least, a generous 20% off at Bahri Bar in Mina A’Salam and Goodfellas at Ramee Rose.
