Medicines in transit

Jump to last reply

I believe that recently there have been some cases of people being stopped whilst passing through the UAE for having non prescriptive drugs either on their persons or in their luggage. Most notably a Pakistani cricketer.

Whilst my medicines are prescribed for me, I do not have prescriptions for them as they are readily obtainable over the counter in Thailand.

I am transiting through Abu Dhabi en-route to/from Europe. Most of my medicine will be in my checked in luggage but I will have a couple of allergy tablets on me.

I have travelled to Dubai twice without a problem, but should I now be concerned about this?
