Hospitality plays a central role in both social and professional interactions: longer greetings are an important prelude to business matters. It can be seen as impolite to refuse tea or coffee when offered, and it can be offensive to pass or receive food with your left hand. English is widely spoken throughout social and professional settings, but Arabic is the official language and legal documents must be written or translated into Arabic before they can be submitted to state agencies. Hindi, Urdu and Tagalog are also common. Passport holders from the US, Canada, Australia, Western Europe and some Asian nations can receive free visitor visas on arrival at the airport. GCC citizens do not need any visa to enter; nationals of all other countries should confirm visa regulations before travelling. Visitors who are unfamiliar with the Arabian Peninsula region may find the weather difficult to handle. In the summer months the temperature rarely drops below 40°C. During the hottest months, travellers are advised to spend most of their time indoors.
