AMMAN — The Tourism Ministry has announced instructions that allow tourist facilities to work during Ramadan and provide services, but without violating the “sanctity” of the fasting month, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Thursday.

Tourism Minister Lina Annab said that the annual instructions allow serving food and beverages to visitors of tourist restaurants during Ramadan, provided that such facilities are fully closed and cannot be seen from outside.

The ministry bans restaurants and coffee shops from serving food and beverages before the fast-breaking iftar meal time, but allows such facilities to deliver orders. The instructions also entail obtaining licences for conducting night festivals, Petra added.
