I'm flying from South Africa to Paris in September for a wedding. The groom is into wine, so I'll thought to give the couple an assorted case (12 bottles) of South African wines. Can I take the wine through Dubai as checked baggage? I would only have a 5 hour layover so I won't be leaving the airport.
From past experience, I know that checking baggage through to the final destination often doesn't work, so I'm also worried about trundling round the airport with it.
I'm also aware that 12 bottles is over the tax free limit for most countries, and will be declaring the wine when landing in France, but not in Dubai.
