Travelers from the United States can begin flying to Israel on May 23rd. Following the decrease in the pandemic spread ratio, the country announced a new foreign travel guideline. For more than one year, it has closed the door for foreign travelers since the pandemic started.
The States will organize a testing center before lodging the flight. The Israel tourism ministry made a press note regarding the foreigner’s entry, and it states that the initial travel permit is for only a small travel group from selected countries. Passengers from all countries tested and should carry a negative certificate while traveling to Israel.
The tourism industry is an important part of the Israeli economy, and it has been struggling since the pandemic began. The retail and hotel industries have suffered, and the new initiative for foreign travelers may help to boost the industry.
Israel has made progress in developing an effective vaccine for covid 19, and its exports have helped the country’s economy remain stable for the time being. The new plan for lifting the limit on the tourism industry and allowing access for foreign travelers to enter the country will help build a stronger economy.
“It’s time to practice responsible tourism; the open market for hospitality can lead to greater spread.”Following strict guidelines and safety measures could prevent the spread.” said in an Isreal tourism media note.
Israel tour operators made a welcome note for international travelers and said it is beneficial for people who work in the tourism industry. Reopening the tourism sector for foreign travelers will give tour operators, local transportation, restaurants, and the hospitality industries a makeover.
