Common Prescription Drugs Illegal in UAE

Jump to last reply

I am travelling to Dubai on Sunday and am on a variety of antidepressant drugs. Quite by chance I happened to read somewhere that Prozac was banned in UAE and my research has now established that MANY antidepressant, sleeping tablets, HRT, and Codeine is not allowed in the country.

I was surprised that this was not mentioned on this forum and whilst this is my first post wanted to share it with other travellers.

I have checked with the embassies in London and Washington and you need a note from your Doctor stating the following :

: Your Name
: Your Passport Number
: Your Address
: A Statement about your Condition
: How many tablets and what you are carrying
: A prescription

Failure to do this could result in four years imprisonment !!

For more information you can read it on :

Happy Travels..
