From November, Israel to allow vaccinated international tourists to enter the country

Published on : Saturday, October 23, 2021

From next month, individual tourists who are vaccinated completely will be allowed to enter Israel, the government said this on Thursday. This move has erased the curbs on international arrivals that were inflicted when the pandemic started.


A joint plan between the tourism and health ministries and Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will allow the right to entry of foreign tourists who are vaccinated in the last six months from Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Sinovac and Sinopharm as of Nov. 1.


Those who have recovered from COVID-19 may also enter Israel under the plan. However, they need to receive one vaccine dose approved by the World Health Organization.


The plan is subject to cabinet approval and “will be updated in accordance with developments and the discovery of new variants”, the joint statement said.


On Sunday, Bennett told cabinet ministers “as we are managing the gradual exit from the Delta wave, we are preparing the infrastructure for the ‘Omega’ scenario’,” the code name for a new variant.


From March 2020, the borders of Israel have largely remained closed to foreign tourists. In recent months, it has allowed tourists in small groups of vaccinated tourists and first-degree relatives of Israelis.
