Here is a piece of good news for all tourists who wants to visit Israel.
On Sunday, the Israeli government has decided to allow all tourists of all ages – even those who are unvaccinated – to enter Israel beginning on March 1.
Based on a statement from the prime minister’s office, tourists will still be required to submit a negative PCR test prior to boarding the flight to Israel and be tested again upon landing at Ben-Gurion Airport.
The latest order also states that returning Israelis will no longer have to submit a negative PCR test before leaving to Israel, but will be required to be tested upon arriving in Israel.
Tourists and Israelis who test negative on the PCR test at Ben-Gurion will also not anymore undergo a quarantine.
Sources said the latest order is part of the government’s plan to lift almost all COVID restrictions by March 1.
According to reports, the Israeli government has also decided to phase out the requirement for students to undergo antigen tests twice a week.
It was learned that the mandatory testing will end for middle school students on Thursday, and for elementary school students in two weeks, on March 10.
