What is the typical dress code at work and in public places? Is formal dress ever required?
Business casual. Suits if you have ministry meetings outside embassy. Formal dress only needed once a year for Marine Ball. - May 2018
Business casual for work. In public places, anything goes. - Sep 2017
Pretty casual all around, women should wear dresses to the knee though, not shorter. - Sep 2014
Business casual, the POL/ECON folks wear suits, but no one else does. It's hot and humid. Leave your pantyhose at home. - Jun 2014
This is a very tolerant Muslim society. I've seen modest dress to skanky outfits on the same block. - Aug 2013
Casual to shirt-and-tie at work. In public most anything goes except shorts. - Sep 2010
