Israel travel changes due to Covid

July 6, 2021 | COVID-19, Travel

Due to a surge in Covid cases, particularly the Delta variant, Israel has had to hold back on plans to ease travel restrictions. The Israel government is urging residents not to travel abroad and for people coming into Israel, they will have to undergo a Covid PCR test. The number of testing sites is said to have increased at the airport as a result.


On 15th June 2021, Israel lifted it’s indoor mask rule, but since the increase in cases, masks must be worn indoors including inside the airport. 


Prior to this outbreak, Israeli nationals were permitted to travel abroad freely and plans for international tourists entering Israel after July 1st were in place, providing they had a vaccine. 


These plans are now being postponed. It has been said that the Israeli government will announce further plans and changes to travel rules in due course.
