On July 14, 2021, Israeli Minister of Tourism Yoel Razvozov visited Ben Gurion Airport and the tourist office located in it to check on the preparations for the reception of tourists. 


The move comes the day after a meeting with the Coronavirus Committee, where the Israeli Tourism Minister presented a plan to bring foreign visitors back. 

To date, the plan includes two options to allow tourists to enter Israel. One of them will allow entry to those tourists who are vaccinated with vaccines approved by the FDA / EMA. They will only need to pass PCR tests.

The second option is suitable for tourists who are vaccinated with other vaccines. Upon entering the country, they will need to undergo serological testing in a specially equipped room inside the Ben Gurion Airport building. The results will be provided to the tourist within 15 minutes. 

“Mechanisms need to be found, and moreover, they exist, so that the tourism industry can resume operations while maintaining the health of Israeli citizens. If the epidemiological situation in the country is favorable, the approximate date for the return of inbound tourism to Israel is August 1. Postponing this deadline will require compensation for industry participants who have been hit hard by the pandemic. I believe that the joint work of the Ministry of Tourism with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of the Interior will soon bear fruit” - Israeli Minister of Tourism Yoel Razvozov.
