The process for Alcohol License has now been updated in Dubai. All alcohol licence holders are now required to transition to a smart new system and have the new licence by 31st August 2020.
The old Red card will now be replaced by black smart cards, starting September 2020 as the old system will be discontinued. This is part of Dubai’s wider drive to embrace smart solutions across the Emirate.
In order to replace your license with the new smart card you can either:
(A) Process the renewal of your license now – at which point the remaining months left on your existing card will be added to the new Alcohol Licence. The annual renewal fee remains unchanged at AED 270. You can expect to receive AED 1,500 worth of rewards and discounts along with the new license.
(B) Replace the existing license for AED 25. This will be valid till the current card expires. With this option you can expect to receive a voucher for AED 25 to spend in the Value Vault.
