UAE's Federal Tax Authority (FTA) has issued a public clarification EXTP002 in relation to moving Excise Goods which are marked with a Digital Tax Stamp (DTS) not containing end-to-end traceability. As per the FTA clarification,
"Designated Excise Goods which have been marked with a Digital Tax Stamp under the workaround solution (i.e. not including end-to-end traceability) and have been legitimately imported into the UAE, may remain in the UAE market beyond 1 August 2019. Similarly, any such products which have been entered into an Excise Tax Designated Zone (with a customs check) in the period 1 May 2019 until 1 August 2019, are allowed to be moved into the UAE mainland or Duty Free areas after 1 August 2019 and will still be considered compliant with the DTS regime."
