Individual Tourists to be Allowed into Israel Starting July 1

Vaccinated individual tourists are to be allowed into Israel from July 1.

Tourism Minister Orit Farkash-Hacohen made the announcement, but a Health Ministry official said the statement was premature.

“I’m happy that the hard work of the Tourism Ministry staff, along with the Health Ministry, Foreign Affairs, and the Interior Ministry, led the interior minister to declare that the requirements for vaccinated tourists will be relaxed and there will be an expansion of the entry of individual tourists starting July 1,” Tourism Minister Orit Farkash-Hacohen tweeted Friday. “The time has come for Israel to open up to tourism and to take advantage of its status as a vaccinated country for the benefit of its economy.” (JPost / VFI News)
