Israel is to reopen its borders to all international travellers from 1 March, including those who aren’t vaccinated against COVID-19.

The move was confirmed by the Israeli Prime Minister’s office today.

It said all tourists will be allowed to enter Israel from next month, whether they have been vaccinated or not.

They will have to submit a negative PCR test before boarding and take another PCR after landing.

Until 1 March, only vaccinated foreigners are allowed to travel to Israel.

Sharon Ehrlich Bershadsky, Director of the Israel Tourism Office in London, said: “This is the news that we have been eagerly waiting for since the first wave of the pandemic two years ago.

“Israel has had a world leading response to its management of Coronavirus and this decision to open the borders in line with new figures is welcomed. After two years we hope this is one of many boosts the travel industry needs as it bounces back after a long period of uncertainty.

“We are hopeful visitor levels will begin to restore themselves to pre-pandemic numbers as consumer confidence grows in line with restrictions easing.”

All new travel restrictions will be listed on https://israelsafe.com and https://corona.health.gov.il/en/ shortly.
