The entire UAE operates a zero tolerance policy to drug use.

There is a list of 65 pharmaceutical products the UAE Ministry of Health has also classifieds as narcotics, including brands such as co-codamol and paracodol, which would be readily available over the counter in chemists abroad.

Customs officials say many airline passengers found carrying banned medicines claim ignorance. Customs say the full list can be obtained by contacting the Ministry of Health or pharmacies in Dubai so it is extremely important to make sure you do your research thoroughly.

Virtually all cases of people found with hard drugs end up with the culprit jailed.
