We do several things in our everyday routine which are common in our country, but there are many countries that do not allow their people to do all those things because they are banned. It is very important to read about the rules and regulations of a country before planning your visit there. Here is the outline of some of the troubles.
1. Chewing Gum:
Due to the laws made in Singapore for making their streets flawless, Singapore comes in the list of the cleanest countries in today's time. They have huge penalties for spitting, smoking in public places and littering. The selling and importing of chewing gum within the country are completely prohibited and is a punishable offence.
2. Proper Clothing:
Almost every Muslim country don't allow their ladies to show up any part of their body; some have high penalties and sometimes you may end up your life in prison. According to the law, a woman should cover her complete arms and legs, should wear loose clothes and cover her head with a scarf.
3. Staying together without marriage:
If you are living together before marriage then you need to be knowledgeable about the penalties of this law before visiting the United Arab Emirates. You cannot even stay together in a hotel room if you do not have your marriage certificate with you.
4. Valentine's Day Celebration:
It is strictly prohibited for the citizens of Pakistan and Saudi Arabia for celebrating Valentine's Day. It is said in the Muslim tradition that this day focuses on love and affection instead of God's worship. Any kind of jokes and advertisements in these countries are punishable. The same is banned in several parts of Indonesia as well.
6. Eating in Public:
Doesn't matter if you are non-muslim, you are not allowed to eat or drink anything publicly in the daytime during the month of Ramadan in the United Arab Emirates.
7. Alcohol Consumption:
Alcohol is against Islamic teachings and so you will not get to buy alcohol in any Muslim country. Baggage checking is very strict in Saudi Arabia’s airport so that no one can get alcohol in their country as it is completely banned there. Your life will be at the risk of imprisonment if they caught you drinking.
