Thats probably a good idea because you can get most spirits here cheap, but you might not be able to get you favourite wine

This seems to me the correct response. Accepting this as the law, i.e. that whether you have a liquor licence or not, if you are caught transporting through Sharjah you are breaking the law. The answer I really need is what is the maximum or likely penalty. Confiscation and a fine is very different to imprisonment and deportation. Is someone able to give a definitive response?

Its all about risk management!

Take a look at this,

Gulfnews: Conmen bribe alcohol buyers in Ajman

I know its a bit out of date but it does say;

"An official at Ajman Police told Gulf News that non-Muslims can buy alcohol for personal use only from outlets in Umm Al Quwain, Ajman, Dubai and Abu Dhabi if they have a liquor licence.

He added that non-Muslims who have legally bought alcohol are allowed to transport it for personal use only in their vehicles through any emirate, although they must not be under the influence of alcohol behind the wheel."
