Israel has banned entrance to the country for the citizens of a number of countries, including Ukraine due to the spread of the coronavirus infection, as well as canceled earlier issued permissions for entrance as the Population and Immigration Authority reported.
“Entry to Israel is prohibited for foreign nationals (except for A1 and A5 visa holders) from the following countries: Ukraine, Ethiopia, Brazil, South Africa, India, Mexico, Turkey,” the message said.
It is noted that the Israeli side has canceled the special permit issued for entrance to the country until May 1, 2021. For the procession of the new permission, the applicant has to request the relevant bodies of Israel once more.
In March 2021, PM Benjamin Netanyahu stated that Israel became the first country that overcame the coronavirus. The country succeeded to emerge from the pandemic thanks to the quick and efficient vaccination.
On April 24, Israel recommended the citizens not to visit a number of countries where the incidence rate is high. Ukraine is on the list of such countries. Besides, the list includes Ethiopia, Brazil, South Africa, India, Mexico, and Turkey.
