It's never difficult, you can purchase everything you need in any supermarket to produce Ale & Plonk, it was never a problem in Saudi Arabia.

I would assume Ajman police can only speak for laws in Ajman, not in other emirates. Anyway police statements even within an emirate are contradictory often enough so I'd still be wary about transporting booze across emirates even with a licence. If living in Sharjah with a Sharjah booze licence and buying from Dubai, Ajman, UAQ or RAK then it might be ok.

No offense Chocs, but these little tidbits into your family's illegal activities seems to explain why you have such disregard for laws.

Go to Sharjah Police Station and ask, the following will probably be required as a minimum;

Sharjah Residence Permit
Letter from your Employer
Copy of your Passport Including Visa Page
Copy of your work permit
2 Passport Photo's

If your residence permit is issued in another Emirate such as Dubai or Abu Dhabi, you should go to any of the Licenced Liquor stores and they will submit the application for you.

Once again, you can only transport liquor to your home if you have a liquor license and only if you have purchased the liquor and paid the 30% Federal Liquor tax as noted on the receipt that you will be given by the Liquor Shop.

If you are not a Muslim then you are entitled to ask for the details from the Sharjah Police, their will not be a problem, when I worked and was resident in Sharjah I had a Liquor License issued by the Sharjah Police, not a problem.
