Saudi Arabia has banned abayas in examination halls.

The kingdom’s Education and Training Evaluation Commission (ETEC) has said female students will not be permitted to wear loose-fitting, full-length robes at the time of examination.

However, the committee added that it is necessary to adhere to the attire that conforms to the regulation of preserving decency at examination venues.

In 2018, it was announced that Saudi women need not wear the abaya.
