After more than a year and a half of the entry ban, individual tourists are now allowed to return to Israel under certain conditions. According to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz and Tourism Minister Yoel Razvozov, the exact guidelines apply to those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered. Vaccinated travel groups have already been allowed in under certain conditions. After the pandemic began, Israel practically closed itself off.
According to the Ministry of Health, foreigners are allowed to enter the country if they have received two doses of the vaccine from manufacturers Biontech and Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Sinovac, Sinopharm or Institute Serum in India and if at least 14 days have passed since the second dose. After a single dose of Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine, a 14-day period is also necessary. These time windows also apply after booster vaccination.
However, it is also important that no more than 180 days have passed since the second vaccination or, at Johnson & Johnson, since a single vaccination before leaving Israel – or that there is a booster vaccination. In addition, those who have recovered can enter if they receive at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO). Those who have recovered can also enter the country if at least eleven days have passed since testing positive – but no more than 190 days upon departure.
