There is an inverse relationship between the liklihood a place won't allow you to consume liquor and the liklihood you will desperately need to consume liquor when in that place.
The first rule of importation of liquor (or of anything else, for that matter) is "you can if no one checks." Airport security may check for things on arrival, and may not care about liquor or foreigners having it, but if there's any checking of baggage involved, the risk of seizure increases and you're going to have to bring your "A" game.
We perfected our technique on a recent visit to Libya, which is as dry as Yemen or Saudi. We had advance warning that liquor was a high priority for airport checkers in Benghazi so we took no chances. Astute observers may note that Libya has no functioning government and heavily armed militias are still running around the country like they own the place, but they have strict procedures in place to ensure foreigners do not bring haram products to sad friends who are bored out of their skulls in Benghazi.
