Israel announces plan to admit vaccinated tourists

Under the plan, which requires approval from the Cabinet, tourists who received their second vaccine dose or booster shot in the last six months are eligible for entry into Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has approved a plan for tourists who are vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter Israel beginning Nov. 1, more than a year and a half after Israel closed its borders to most foreign travelers. 

Under a new plan approved by Bennett and the Health and Tourism ministries, tourists who were fully vaccinated with Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson and Johnson, Sinovac or Sinopharm vaccines within the last six months or have received a booster shot during that period are eligible to enter the country.
