Israel opens borders for tourists

The head of Israel's Ministry of Tourism, Orit Farkash-Cohen, announced that the country has decided to reap the benefits of a successful coronavirus vaccination campaign and open its borders on July 1.

“It's time for Israel to open up to tourism and take advantage of its status as a vaccinated country for the benefit of its economy,” the minister wrote on social media.

According to Farkash-Cohen, the decision has been agreed with the ministries of health and interior.

Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri stressed that entry for foreign tourists will be allowed primarily from countries with a low incidence rate. The list of such states will be reviewed by the Ministry of Health on a weekly basis.

It is assumed that tourists who have been vaccinated or who have recovered from COVID-19 will be able to enter Israel. More information on travel requirements will be posted at a later date.

Today, small organized groups of foreign tourists and pilgrims, or close relatives of Israeli citizens are allowed into the country.
