Israel tourism set to experience fresh restrictions for curbing spread of COVID-19 Omicron variant

Published on : Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Israel’s ailing tourism sector is set to experience fresh restrictions which would restrict non-citizens for two weeks for curbing the spread of the COVID-19 Omicron variant.


Israeli Tourism Minister YoelRazvozov said that the government will formulate a “compensation outline” for those working in the tourism industry, after the Israel ministers approved the new restrictions.


Razvozov said that he had asked the government to approve a decision for a “compensation outline plan within a week for those in the industry, including tour guides, tour operators, and hotels that work with incoming tourists.” Work on the plan would begin in cooperation with the Finance Ministry.


Razvozovstressed that the compensation plan might include funds for Israelis who have had to cancel upcoming flights and travel packages. The head of the Israeli branch of travel solutions firm Amadeus, Avishay Cohen, said that fewer than 10 percent of trips booked with the company have been canceled since South African officials raised the alarm about the new variant late last week. However, he said that there’s a 50% drop in the number of pre-booked new trips.
