Qatari Greetings 

Qataris usually greet each other by shaking hands or kissing the person on either of his cheek in greetings.




But you are not supposed to use your lips when you kiss but it is only supposed to be cheek to cheek touch.


Sometime it can be nose to nose touch only also. Qataris are very sober when it comes to kissing .


Sometime after shaking hands some people place right hand to the heart showing sign of respect or sincerity.

Kissing forehead, nose, or right hand of a person denotes extreme respect . 


You are not allowed to kiss women nor she would prefer , initiating handshake should be from her side only.
