Yes you can. The duty free is next to the baggage reclaim. I think the cheapest wine bottle was around 60 AED. It is a lot more cheaper than buying wine in restaurants and bars within the hotels. Duty free is a must. Like the previous comment, 4 litres worth!

Duty free wine not really cheap in Dubai but certainly cheaper than the hotel bars so buy the limit!

Can I pack wine in my check baggage (or carry-on from lay-over at LHR duty free) to Dubai, or is "importing" illegal?

Can I buy duty-free wine while on transit at the airport? (Not going into Dubai, only transiting at the airport) Do they sell a good range or just high-priced wine? Can one get say a bottle for US$15? And is US$ used? Thanks.
