Israel to reopen to all foreign tourists, irrespective of their vaccination status

 Monday, February 21, 2022 


Israel will reopen to all foreign tourists, irrespective of their vaccination status, with the country relaxing its travel restrictions in the midst of a rapid decline in coronavirus cases.

Only fully vaccinated foreign visitors have been allowed to enter the country since January; however, that order will end as of March 1, said the Israeli leaders in a statement. Tourists entering Israel will be required to clear two P.C.R. tests — one before departure and one after arrival.

In the last two weeks, Israel has reported a 63 percent decline in new coronavirus cases.

Israel has maintained a strict border policy throughout the pandemic and its once-thriving tourism industry has struggled. The country first closed its borders to most foreign travelers in March 2020, and did not reopen until Nov. 1, 2021. By the end of 2021, the borders shut again due to the Omicron wave.

The authorities are also easing restriction on Israeli nationals, who will no longer be required to experience a P.C.R. test before their flights, but only after arriving in the country. Unvaccinated Israelis will no longer have to quarantine after coming back, if they test negative.
