Israel has announced it is planning to remove all countries from its red list, including the UK, from as early as Sunday.

Israeli Health Ministry director-general Nachman Ash announced the move on the Twitter account @IsraelMOH yesterday.

He said the move is subject to government approval, which is expected to be given on Sunday.

If confirmed, it will mean Brits will be allowed to travel to Israel with a negative PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours or an antigen test taken within 24 hours.

Arrivals will have to take a second COVID test on landing and self-isolate. Vaccinated arrivals will be free from quarantine when they receive a negative result or after 24 hours, unvaccinated arrivals will have to self-isolate for a week and take a second test on day seven.

The Israeli Health Ministry said: “It should be noted that in many countries around the world the morbidity situation is higher than in Israel, so it is advisable to avoid reaching these places unnecessarily as much as possible.”
