Thinking about a holiday in the UAE. There are a few things
you need to know before you go.
Dubai is a fabulous country, people are genuine, hospitable
and courteous. But this is not the US or Europe, this is UAE steeped in
centuries of tradition and devout religious following. One of the reasons I’m
sure you are looking to travel to the UAE is to experience the deep, rich
history and traditions on offer. Always remember that you are in a
different country with a different cultural and belief system to the majority
of westerners, we can seem as strange to them as they might sometimes appear to
us. Its like the old saying “When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do” – it is just
common courtesy to respect your hosts as we expect visitors to our country to
respect our laws and traditions.
Do’s & Don’ts in the UAE
To ensure that your stay is memorable, for all the right
reasons, keep in mind that you are no longer in your own country. Respect the
laws and values of the country and your stay should be an extremely enjoyable
Statement from the Dubai government: Dubai is tolerant
and cosmopolitan and all visitors are welcome. However, Islam is a way of life
in the city, and therefore tourists should adopt a certain level of cultural
and religious sensitivity for the duration of their stay.
Alcohol Consumption: Alcohol
Consumption is allowed only by Non-Muslims in licensed
restaurants, bars, clubs, private venues, and at home. Tourists will not
be able to purchase alcohol in general stores and supermarkets etc., alcohol in
these stores are for residents who have obtained the required liquor license to
purchase alcohol for consumption in their own personal use at homes. It is
against the law to drink alcohol whilst walking in the street or to be drunk in
a public place. UAE does not give any immunity for alcohol related criminal
offences. It is an offence to carry alcohol in your car if you do not hold
the special alcohol licence. If it comes to the attention of the police, you
may be arrested, even though you may have purchased the alcohol
legally. Alcohol can only be consumed by over 21yrs.
Driving: UAE has
a zero-tolerance policy towards drinking and driving. You can be
charged and imprisoned if you are caught with even the smallest amount of
alcohol in your system. If you’re going to drink, walk or get a cab or use the
metro. Tailgating, speeding, racing, lane jumping and using a mobile phone
while driving are all against the law. There are numerous speed cameras on the
roads and motorways. Fines in the UAE are heavy. If you are caught you
may also face the possibility of having your car impounded. Wearing a seat
belt is mandatory. Crossing the road in a non-designated area is also
illegal and the police, particularly in Abu Dhabi, have launched a campaign
against jay walking. If you are caught committing this offence you could
be subject to a fine.
strictly forbidden, even a residual amount. Consuming or carrying drugs, even
if you are transiting through the airport from one country to another, can
result in a standard 4 year imprisonment and deportation (This can even include
what’s in your bloodstream). Buying or selling narcotics is considered a
serious crime which can result in life-imprisonment. Some medicines (accepted
in other countries) containing psychotropic substances are also forbidden, so
check out the UAE relevant embassy website for further information.
Over the Counter or Doctor Prescribed Medications: Dubai and the UAE has very strict drug/medication laws
and even certain over the counter medicines especially those with codeine are
forbidden, even for personal use unless with a specific doctor’s prescription
about the period of use. Checking the banned substances list from the local
consulate or your embassy is also helpful for peace of mind. If you are
using doctor prescribed drugs such as painkillers or antidepressants, it is
advisable to carry a doctor’s note. (A general open letter is NOT
sufficient, the letter must cover the period of travel, and describe the
illness and the relative medicines prescribed for that illness.). If you
are bringing prescription drugs into the UAE you may need to seek prior
agreement from the authorities. You should check with the nearest UAE Embassy
or Consulate before you travel. Please note that whilst some
Control drugs are prescribed as medicines in some countries such as the use of
medical Marijuana, controlled drugs such as these as opposed to control
Pharmaceutical such as painkillers and antidepressants drugs are still NOT
considered to be a Doctor Prescribed Medicine within the UAE. If
these drugs are for genuine medical use it will not be a problem, even for
travellers who need large amounts of medication such as cancer patients.
Always check with the Government link below for total clarification. Do
not just check with your travel agent or hotel as they may not be totally up to
speed with current UAE laws. You sometimes read stories of people arrested
at the airports for carrying prescribed medicines, what these stories don’t tell
you is the amount of medication an individual is trying to bring into the
country under the pretext of personal medical use. Don’t be fooled by the
horror stories which are editorialised to sell copies.
legal age to be able to smoke tobacco in the UAE is 18 years. Smoking is
forbidden in government buildings, offices and shopping malls. There are
however many designated areas where smoking is allowed including many bars.
Traditions: The UAE is built on generations of Islamic traditions which
are rooted firmly in its culture and tribal heritage. These traditions have
been passed down from generation to generation and form the very cornerstone of
everyday life for an Emirati family. The Emirati are friendly people who
show tolerance and an open minded approach to visitors in their country; but
their culture and values should always be respected.
Social Ethics: The
culture and laws in the UAE are designed to ensure that everyone is respectful
of each other regardless of their faith and nationality. Visitors and residents
alike should avoid types of improper conduct and behaviour which can
otherwise lead to fines, imprisonment and deportation.
Dress Code: Emirati dress conservatively in traditional dress and can be
offended when people dress inappropriately or not in accordance with Islamic
In public places such as shopping
malls, restaurants and parks, you are encouraged to dress appropriately.
Clothing should NOT be transparent, indecently expose parts of the body or
display offensive pictures or slogans. Be careful as well if you are
tattooed with what could be deemed offensive images or slogans, if in doubt
cover up. Be aware that if you enter one of these areas dressed
inappropriately you could albeit unlikely be asked to leave (most of the larger
shopping malls display signs warning respectable clothing should be
worn). Any form of nudity is strictly forbidden, including topless
sunbathing. Swimwear should not be worn in any other area outside the beach,
water parks, or swimming pools. Bear in mind that just because you see someone
else doing something such as topless bathing does not mean that it is
right. It is preferable for both men and women to have their shoulders and
knees covered and for women not to reveal too much décolletage when not on the
beach or at a hotel. It is not appropriate for men to walk along the
street or malls bare-chested.
is allowed in the privacy of your home or at licensed clubs and events.
But dancing in public is classed as indecent and provocative.
Sexual Relationships / Unmarried Couples: Cohabiting outside of marriage are illegal,
irrespective of any relationship you may have with your partner in your own
country. Cohabiting, including in hotels, is also illegal, however most Dubai
hotels don’t enforce “Only Married Couples” rule. Luxury hotels, which
often cater to foreigners, are especially relaxed, so chances are you won’t
have trouble booking a room. At check-in, you’ll be required to show your
passport, but having different surnames won’t raise any eyebrows. In Dubai,
married women often keep their surnames. Once you’ve checked into a hotel,
refer to each other and “Husband” and “Wife” rather than saying “my boyfriend”
or “my fiancé.” This could help prevent potential problems.
Sexual Harassment: Randomly
addressing women in public, or taking their photos without permission, is
strictly frowned upon.
Holding Hands: For
married couples is tolerated but kissing and hugging are considered offences
against public decency. Open displays of affection are generally not
Offensive Language: Spitting
and aggressive behavior (including hand gestures) are viewed very
seriously and can result in imprisonment and deportation. This includes
Respect for Religion: Islamic religious values are greatly respected in the UAE.
Showing any disrespect towards religious beliefs or practices is considered
deeply offensive and very likely to result in a heavy fine and/or imprisonment.
Other religions are respected and can be followed by the expatriate community.
