‘It is generally recommended for men and women to ensure their shoulders and knees are covered.’
In conservative Qatar, women are banned from wearing any revealing outfits such as tight clothing and from showing any cleavage.
Non-Qatari women are not required to wear the abaya – a long, black robe that covers the figure almost from head-to-toe.
But, tourists are to ensure that tops cover their midriff and shoulders, while skirts, dresses and trousers must hide the knees.
