When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
When in France, do as the French do.

it is illegal for anyone to conceal their face in these situations. Often when a Burkha is removed there is a man underneath. as women don't count in islamic countries, they don't care who is underneath.

In Saudi arabia women have to wear local dress i.e black shroud all over regardless of their origin. So the answer would probably be yes. No choice
