What to Expect when Working in Saudi Arabia?

Clothing - For women, you will earn the ire of the locals if your clothing reveals the shoulders, arms, legs or even thin clothes that reveal the shape of your collar bone so make sure you are covered in these area. You may dress as you like once you’re in your private room just be sure you are not visible from the outside. Wearing an “Abaya” is also needed to cover the face and neck since as a common practice they want women to avoid unwanted attention and is meant for their own protection.

Etiquette - Arab’s give great importance to how you address them. It’s important that you greet them in the proper way such as using Sayyed (Sir) or Sayeeda (Madam) then complete the greeting with their name. Other common customs include never declining refreshment except for alcohol since it may be a great disrespect especially if that person does not drink alcohol.
