Customer Question

I am travellling to Dubai, and will bring 20 pills of diazepam. I don't have a prescription because I have lost it. What is the law for bringing Diazepam into Dubai?

Thank you for your question.
Diazepam is a controlled medication in Dubai/UAE. This means you can bring it in provided you have been prescribed it by a doctor. You will need to bring the prescription and it will need to be in its original packaging. If you've lost the prescription ask you doctor for a duplicate or a letter. Don't try to take the drugs in without this.
You are also only allowed to bring in a reasonable amount suitable for the duration of your stay.
Happy to discuss further.
