Dress Etiquette


Due to the conservative nature of the Islamic religion and practice in Saudi Arabia, travellers are advised to observe the following dress code when in public places :

  • Men should wear long trousers/pants. Shirts should not be open below the collar bone. For business meetings, a conservative suit is expected

  • Women are expected to dress conservatively. It is required to wear an Abaya, which is a long robe, usually black, that covers most of their body. Please select clothes that cover arms and shoulders, and opt for long trousers in place of shorts.

Meeting & Greeting

A handshake is a generally accepted form of meet and greet.
Due to the conservative nature of the 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. Close male counterparts kiss on each cheek.
It is uncommon for men to shake hands with women, unless women offer their hand first.
Always use the right hand when engaging in a handshake, as the left hand is considered impolite. 

Passport and Business card are required

(no entry pass will be granted without these documents).

The Saudi Airshow is strictly a trade event :

  • business attire and national dress only.

  • No admittance to anyone under the age of 16.

The Organisers reserve the right to refuse admission.
