Israel has said that it would reopen its borders for foreign tourists from selective countries from September 19, for reviving the tourism industry that has been hit badly since the onset of COVID-19.


Israel government’s tourism department said that groups of five to 30 people from countries on its green, yellow and orange lists would be allowed to enter if they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


As per the new plan, there will be no restrictions on the number of tour groups to enter Israel; however, the groups from countries on Israel’s red list — Bulgaria, Brazil, Mexico and Turkey will not be eligible.


Individual tourists, who have not been allowed to visit Israel since the coronavirus pandemic started, unless they are visiting family members, will still not be permitted to enter outside of a tour group. Foreign tourists need to produce proof of vaccination taken within the last six months or a booster shot in order to enter Israel.


Besides, tourists will also have to provide a negative PCR test, taken 72 hours before arrival at Tel Aviv airport.
Israel reported almost 5,000 new cases of the coronavirus on Saturday.
