Many thanks. Although bidi is not technically a "style" option, and one  
may be accused of mixing apples and oranges here, decided to test - see  
attached and below:

=======
\setupdirections[bidi=global]
\setupwhitespace[big]
\setupnotation[footnote][style={\setupwhitespace[big],\setupdirections[bidi=global]}]

\starttext
\definedfont[file:almfixed.otf*arabic at 14pt]
Test امتحان test \par Test امتحان test
\startfootnote
\definedfont[file:almfixed.otf*arabic at 14pt]
Test امتحان test \par Test امتحان test
\stopfootnote{}
\stoptext
=======

Why does bidi=global get applied to the second paragraph of the footnote,  
but not to the first?
