Israel to Lift Travel Ban for Mexico
As of Monday, Sept. 27, Israel will lift its covid-19 travel ban for Mexico, the Israeli Ministry of Health said in a statement on Monday, Sept. 20.
Notwithstanding, the existing ban on Israelis flying to Brazil, Bulgaria and Turkey will remain intact, the ministry said.
Israeli citizens and permanent residents who want to travel to the three countries must apply to an exceptions committee.
Meanwhile, arrivals in Israel from the three countries are required to enter a seven-day home quarantine, including the vaccinated and recovered travelers.
Arrivals from all other countries only enter a quarantine of 24 hours at most, until a negative result of covid-19 test is obtained.
An existing travel warning issued by Israel to most countries will not change in the meantime, according to the ministry.
The warning excludes ten countries with low covid-19 morbidity, which are China, Austria, Uruguay, Bahrain, Gabon, New Zealand, Slovakia, Poland, the Czech Republic and Cyprus.
