The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOCI) has issued Circular No. 22 of 2020 on easing restrictions on the activities of restaurants and cafés (coffee shops). It has been decided to allow restaurants and cafés (coffee shops) to resume the activities of delivering or handing over orders to customers outside the business place.

This circular comes to complete the previous decisions and measures taken to prevent and curb the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This also comes out of the keenness to keep the health and safety of citizens and residents.

The Ministry made clear that restaurants and cafés located in malls are exempted from this decision and are allowed to only process delivery orders, and therefore, they are prohibited from handing over orders to customers outside the business place.

The Ministry also urges consumers to report violations or infringements, and receives complaints and suggestions through the following communication channels:

Call center: 16001.
