These inspections teams will check if regular sanitation and disinfection protocols are being carried out in accordance with international standards while utilizing materials approved by the Ministry of Health.
The Assistant Minister of Tourism and Antiquities for the Control of Hotel Facilities and Tourism Activities Abdel Fattah al-Asi explained that these inspection teams are also inspecting hygiene standards in kitchens, stores, restaurants and cafeterias while also judging the general quality of hotel services.
