Authorities in Abu Dhabi are considering introducing a dress code as a national law to be enforced in public places in the United Arab Emirates. The issue is currently under debate. The proposed law was recommended by the Federal National Council (FNC) and was backed by Dr Al Owais, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development.
There are some public places which already impose a dress code for entering. The polticians who are involved so far have agreed that it is expatriates rather than tourists that are more likely to walk around inappropriately dressed.
Dr Al Owais said: "In the UAE we are a conservative society. We hold on to our traditions. I speak as the head of the national tourism council and our powers are limited".
