AMMAN — Tourism Minister Lina Annab on Tuesday said the ministry has decided to ban the use of loudspeakers and DJ outside tourist facilities, a ministry statement said. The decision comes in line with the regulations related to preventing noise pollution based on the Environment Law of 2016.

The ministry will be the authority to monitor the commitment to the new decision at tourist facilities across the Kingdom, she added. The minister warned against violating the law, which will be subject to legal measures implemented by the Tourism Police Department.

Technically, all hotels are tourist facilities. If this ban is really enforced it will kill the hotel industry since many rely on weddings to supplement their revenue.
