From September 19, as part of a pilot program to promote tourism, Israel will allow small groups of tourists from individual countries to enter. This is reported by CNN.
It is reported that tourist groups of 5 to 30 people from countries in the green, yellow, and orange zones will be allowed to enter, provided that all members of the group are fully vaccinated against coronavirus. It is known that foreign tourists will have to show proof of a second vaccine dose within the last six months or revaccination to be eligible for entry.
Tourists will also have to present a negative PCR test done 72 hours before arrival and retest after landing at the airport.
According to the new plan, there will be no limit on the number of tourist groups that are allowed into Israel. However, groups from countries on Israel’s red list, which currently includes Bulgaria, Brazil, Mexico, and Turkey, will not be allowed to enter.
Turkish authorities within the country will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative PCR test 48 hours before travel, particularly for domestic travel by plane, bus, train, or other public transportation starting Sept. 6.
