Israel has changed the order of entry of foreigners into the country. Under the new rules, vaccinated Ukrainians can cross the Israeli border, but they still need to pass a PCR test for coronavirus, the press service of the Ukrainian Embassy in Israel reports.
“In connection with the introduction by the competent authorities of the State of Israel of some changes to the procedure for entry of foreign nationals into Israel, we remind you of the requirements that must be followed by all foreigners wishing to visit Israel,” the statement reads.
Before traveling, you must apply in advance to enter Israel at the Israeli diplomatic or consular office at the place of residence or at the Office of Population and Immigration.
Entry into Israel is allowed only in the presence of a negative PCR test performed 72 hours before arrival in Israel. In addition, upon arrival in the country, an additional PCR test is needed.
This also applies to those who have a coronavirus vaccination certificate or a coronavirus recovery document.
All unvaccinated citizens entering Israel must undergo self-isolation. Citizens who have been vaccinated or re-infected with the coronavirus must also undergo self-isolation. The duration of self-isolation is 14 days.
As it was reported earlier, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky spoke with business representatives and potential investors from the American Jewish Committee, a Jewish human rights organization.
“I invite you to become part of the process of transformation of Ukraine,” Zelensky said.
