Dubai and medication.

Thought I would post here to.

If your medication is on the narcotic, controlled or semi controlled uae government list you need to apply online for pre approval of the meds.

You can find a guide and the list here:
government.ae/en/informa...led-medicines-

You can only apply for the time you are in the country, so if youre going for 7 days you can only apply for 7 days worth.

The online form is here:
mohap.gov.ae/en/services/Pages/361.aspx

Click go to eservice to apply.

You need to register, including passport details. Then you can start an application.

Its pretty straightforward and they get back to you quickly (next day for me), but it took a week for them to approve mine, went back and forth 6 times and two phone calls. So give yourself plenty time.

Once approved you get a document that states you have approval and what for.

Hope this helps, it was a bit confusing at first for me.

Question about Atlantis hotel again please!

We're staying in the Imperial Club Room so have club room access. I believe you can access the club room at any time for certain drinks (soft drinks etc) is this correct?

Also, during the evening access 5-7pm you are served alcohol, does this have to be consumed within the club room or could one of us go for a few drinks to bring back to our room for example? Is there a dress code for the club room during the evening hours?

Thanks

There is always another time (before Ramadan)
We are due too go in April and have been watching from afar whats going on but didnt realise that there were people actually leaving the place .

Dress code in many bars and hotels after 6pm/sunset is certainly no shorts, t shirts or sandals for men.

Sometimes no bare shoulders for women but they will give you a shawl if they think you are underdressed - they just turn away men that dont follow the local custom of dress code .
