Israel is reopening to international travelers just in time for summer. Starting May 23, the country will start welcoming vaccinated visitors as part of a phased approach.
The first phase will allow a limited number of tour groups to visit, and the number will increase based on the country’s evolving COVID-19 situation. At a later reopening date in July, individual vaccinated travelers will be allowed to enter. For all phases, vaccinated visitors must still provide evidence of a negative PCR test before entering the country, and a serological test upon arrival to prove their vaccination.
