Israel opens borders for even unvaccinated tourists from March
Israel opens borders for even unvaccinated tourists from March

JERUSALEM – Beginning March 1, Israel will open its borders to all travellers, including those who have not been vaccinated.

According to sources, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said in a joint statement on Sunday that all tourists would be required to pass two PCR tests, one prior to departure and the other after landing.

The obligation to take an antigen test before boarding a plane has been removed for Israeli citizens. Instead, only a PCR test will be required upon arrival. If a PCR test at the airport yields a negative result, unvaccinated Israelis will not need to be quarantined.

In a statement, Bennett stated, "We are seeing a consistent drop in morbidity data." "The situation in Israel at the moment is favourable," he said, adding that this was "the outcome of smart and dynamic management." Only vaccinated travellers are currently permitted to enter the nation.

In March 2020, Israel imposed limitations on foreign tourists, which were eventually loosened. In late 2021, the country effectively closed its flights to foreign tourists after cases of the extremely infectious Omicron variant were detected.
