The skies are opening up: these are the countries we can rest in soon


The sky opens: After the Corona Cabinet approved last night (Wednesday) the outline for opening the sky and returning the flights in 10 days – in News 12, the list of countries that are expected to approve the entry of Israeli tourists was published for the first time tonight. The emerging list currently includes 13 countries, including: Germany, Italy, Greece and Cyprus. As part of the emerging outline, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are working to find a solution for bringing tourists into Israel within six weeks.

Israel is currently in talks with a number of countries to allow Israelis to enter their territory: Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Jordan, Latvia, Finland, Georgia, Rwanda, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Germany and Austria. The initial list of “green” countries is currently being worked on by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Health.

Due to the high level of morbidity in Israel, there are countries that still do not allow Israeli citizens to enter their territory, and some require a corona test before arrival and isolation of several days and therefore the talks with the various countries are conducted.

Inbound tourism is also on the agenda: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Health are formulating a plan to bring tourists in capsules from “green” countries. According to the emerging outline, organized trips from abroad will be able to arrive in Israel in a supervised manner and without committing to isolation. You can get into action.

Yesterday, the Corona cabinet approved the outline for the opening of the sky, which was agreed upon by Transport Minister Miri Regev, Health Minister Yuli Edelstein and Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi. According to the decision, the sky will reopen in ten days, on August 16. “I thank Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for giving the green light to open the skies,” said Minister Regev. “Together with the Minister of Health and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, we will work to implement the outline that will allow the skies to open and protect Israeli aviation.”
