DUBAI – There is no change to the UK advice to British nationals against drinking alcohol in the UAE, the embassy has confirmed.
The statement came amid reports in UK news websites that claimed that British consular officials issued “shock new warning” to tourists not to drink on flights to the UAE.
The reports came after a British-based dentist, Ellie Holman, was arrested in Dubai in July.
The UK Government, on Facebook, had reminded British nationals about requiring a special licence to consume alcohol in the UAE, which is thought to have fuelled the UK reports.
On Saturday, the UK Government posted a clarification on its Facebook page saying,”For clarity, there has been no change to the UK Government’s advice to British nationals on consuming alcohol in the UAE.” GAD/Expat Media
