All travellers to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are advised to observe the following dress code when in public areas.
Men should wear long pants and shirts not open above the collarbone.
For business meetings, a conservative suit is expected. Women are required to wear an abaya, which is a long robe, usually black, that covers most of their body.
Due to the conservative nature of Saudi society, men and women are reserved in their interaction in public.
It is common for a Saudi to greet each person individually with a handshake while standing.
Always use the right hand when engaging in a handshake, as the left hand is considered impolite.
Please note that it is uncommon for men to shake hands with women unless women offer their hand first.
