Israel to open borders to vaccinated tourists

Foreign vaccinated tourists will be able to enter Israel privately from July 1, the country’s foreign ministry said.

“As Israeli Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked announced today, starting from July 1, vaccinated tourists will be able to enter Israel privately, not as part of groups and without prior permission in accordance with the usual visa conditions,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

It is noted that the list of countries whose residents will be given this opportunity, as well as approved vaccines, will be published later.

Earlier it was reported about the arrival of the first group of foreign tourists from the United States, consisting of 12 Christian pilgrims.

Earlier it was reported that Israel plans to open the borders to individual tourists in July this year, with the first 40 organized groups of tourists who have been vaccinated with drugs confirmed by the FDA and the European Medicines Agency EMA, will be able to arrive in the country on May 23. Israel closed its borders to foreign tourists in March 2020. From January to February 2021, Ben-Gurion Airport was completely closed, including for Israelis returning to their homeland.
