The monarchies of the Persian Gulf are strictly Muslim countries, but take very different views on alcohol. Trying to figure out the alcohol policies of the GCC, I drew up this map, using the information that I believe is correct — comments on the specifics are most welcome.
The borders of the United Arab Emirates are not authoritative — see my previous post for more carefully defined borders.
These policies are constantly in flux. Ajman only requires a liquor license for drinkers only as of 2008, and MPs in Bahrain recently voted to ban alcohol, although how that bill will progress is by no means clear. And despite what you may read, Kuwait is in no position to change its laws.
