No scanners in Dubai

Some countries still have some sense:

Airports in Dubai also refused full-body scanners as part of their border security regime because the devices do not correspond with national customs and ethics.
Brig Ahmed bin Thani, the Dubai Police’s director of airport security: ‘I do not feel that it is necessary for us to implement such a technology while we are operating different methods and have different avenues that have worked so far.
‘The use of such a device violates personal privacy and it raises a very sensitive issue for passengers, in addition to the fact that it does not complement our national ethics.’
