Abu Dhabi Alcohol

So I read in the closed forum posts that ppl bought alcohol at the Dutyfree when they landed?! I didn’t find anything on the airport DF site about arriving tourists and ability to purchase alcohol. Can someone please clarify - I may be misunderstanding.

And one more question - how old do you have to be to carry up to 4 liters of alcohol arriving in Abu Dhabi

Thank you all ! #loveforumhelp

You should be over 21 years old to purchase alcohol. Allowances are here:

Yes you can there is a duty free at arrivals. We bought as a couple 2 bottles of gin and couple bottles of wine glad we did. Prices in hotels were outrageous. €14for a small glass of wine same for a small gin and tonic!!
