Israel’s Ministry of Tourism has announced that Israel will accept all fully vaccinated tourists from 1 November.
Previously, it had only allowed a limited number of tourists to enter the country on escorted tours.
The requirement to be part of a pre-booked tour group will be removed from 1 November.
However, arrivals must present a negative PCR test, taken no more than 72 hours before their flight, unless they have proof they’ve recovered from COVID at least 11 days and no more than three months earlier.
They must also take a second test on arrival at Tel Aviv airport, at their own expense. It costs about £18 if pre-booked, or £22 to buy on arrival.
Overseas arrivals must also apply online for an entry permit, no more than 24 hours before departure.
A spokesperson for the Israel tourist office in the UK said they were still waiting for confirmation of the rules for children.
