Import/Availability of Liquor
Import of liquor is not allowed, however, if somebody brings in some quantity by mistake, he/she should declare it to the Customs Officer who shall detain the liquor against a receipt and return to the tourist on his/her departure from Pakistan. Non-Muslim foreign tourists can purchase liquor from an authorized vendor in Pakistan (usually a 5 or 4 star hotel) against a permit. This permit can be obtained from the Excise and Taxation Officer of the respective area. Hotels having a liquor vending license can also sell liquor to non-Muslim foreign tourists staying in the hotel. Please note that drinking at public places is prohibited.
