“It’s generally recommended that men and women make sure their shoulders and knees are covered.”
In conservative Qatar, women are prohibited from wearing revealing outfits such as tight-fitting clothes and showing cleavage.
Non-Qatari women are not required to wear the abaya – a long black robe that covers the figure almost from head to toe.
But tourists should ensure that tops cover their stomachs and shoulders, while skirts, dresses and pants should hide the knees.
The often glamorous WAGs were advised to wear a scarf around their necks to cover their chests.

One fan on social media said: ‘Spotted her, very brave! she will be arrested there if she is not careful…’
Another user said: “I will post my boobs later to celebrate Messi and the Argentina World Cup.”
Croatian model Ivana Knoll, 26, dubbed the World Cup’s ‘sexiest fan’, flouted the Muslim nation’s draconian dress code rules by wearing a series of daring outfits, including swimwear, insisting on the fact that she is not afraid of being arrested.
Argentina beat France tonight in a spectacular football match that showcased Argentina’s unbeatable agility and skills.
Just as star player Lionel Messi kissed the coveted golden trophy, he also picked up a kiss from his most loyal fan, his wife Antonela Roccuzzo.
Argentina’s WAGS were seen taking selfies, cheering and coming together with their partners on the pitch to share in the moment of glory.
Meanwhile, for the French side, it was a crushing defeat at the final stage of the competition which even saw President Emmanuel Macron comfort his wife Brigitte Macron.
