Dress code

In Qatar, it's crucial to adhere to cultural norms and respect local traditions when it comes to dressing, especially during professional training. The general dress code is conservative and modest. Here are some guidelines for appropriate attire during training in Qatar:

  • For men: Business casual, long-sleeved shirts and trousers are generally acceptable, or traditional Qatari attire is appropriate
  • For women: Modest clothing covering the shoulders and knees are recommended. Skirts and trousers should be at least knee-length Sleeveless tops may not be appropriate; it's advisable to wear clothing with sleeves. Women may choose to wear a headscarf as a sign of respect, but it is not mandatory.
