A shirt and trousers/jeans for men; a shirt and slacks/jeans, or knee length dress for women. Shorts, cut-offs, beach-type clothing, and provocative or revealing clothing such as mini-skirts, low-cut blouses, tube tops, low-cut pants, and see-through blouses are not acceptable. Sleeveless shirts, tank tops, hats, hooded shirts or sweatpants are also not allowed. Proper footwear must be worn; however, no sandals, flip-flops or thong-type shoes are allowed in visiting.
