How much alcohol can you buy at the Airport on arrival

How much alcohol can you buy at the Airport on arrival in Dubai to take to your hotel. Only looking at 3 or 4 bottles of wine, 2 of us travelling. Will this be OK?

The limit is 4 litres each. This applies no matter where you buy it, so if you want you could buy it when exiting the UK (if flying direct) instead of on arrival in Dubai.

I'm not sure what you need to know that isn't already on the topic.

The first reply says 4 litres each - why do you think 1 litre will be taken away ?

The duty-free alcohol allowance for adults over 21 arriving in Dubai is 4 litres TOTAL per person, of wine, beer or spirits, or a combination thereof up to four litres total.
