In order to promote tourism in Dubai, the 30% tax on alcohol has been abolished. Personal liquor licenses will also be available free of charge in Dubai.
It should be noted that anyone must be at least 21 years of age to legally consume alcohol in the UAE.
This latest move is seen as an attempt to make Dubai more attractive to foreigners compared to neighboring countries.
Two alcohol distributors in Dubai have said they will reflect the tax cuts to consumers.
It is not yet clear whether the move, which will come into effect on January 1, will be permanent. According to foreign media, this move may be for a one-year trial.
