Israel Tourism Board launches dedicated Covid site

Wednesday, 11 Jan, 2022 0

Following approval to re-open Israel to vaccinated incoming tourists, the Israel Ministry of Tourism has launched a dedicated mini-site on its website.

The mini-site incorporates all the necessary information related to local Covid guidelines that a vaccinated/recovered tourist would need to visit to Israel.

The mini-site, which will be updated in accordance with any future changes in regulations, is currently in English and will be translated to other languages in the near future.

Information includes Planning Your Trip (definition of vaccinated and recovered tourist, list of approved vaccines and required documentation for entry into Israel); During Your Stay (where/how to get Covid testing) and Before You Leave (requirements for testing and documentation).

The mini-site also includes links to related information at the Israel Ministry of Health and the Home Front Command websites.

The Covid-19 pandemic decimated Israel’s tourism industry, with the closure of all incoming tourism in March 2020, and continued uncertainty after a consistent period of increasing growth.

It was a record year in 2019 for incoming tourism to Israel, with 4.55 million tourists (11% increase on the previous year) and revenue of NIS 23 billion.

Incoming tourism plunged to just 832,500 tourist arrivals in 2020 and 401,500 in 2021.

In Israel, the Ministry of Tourism has made significant investments in maintaining and upgrading tourism infrastructure throughout the country, so that tourists can again enjoy its historical, religious, cultural and tourist sites.
