Israeli border guards will let the vaccinated Ukrainians travel in their country freely. Press office of the State Border Guard of Ukraine reported that on January 4.

"As of January 9, Israel will allow entry to vaccinated tourists from countries that are not on the 'red' list. Now Ukraine is on the 'orange' list," the statement reads. 

The necessary conditions include the following ones: 

  • a special form should be filled in 48 hours before the arrival;
  • a PCR test or anti-gene test should be performed before and after the arrival in Israel;
  • after the arrival, the passengers are required to hold the quarantine: either the one lasting for 24 hours or the one to expire with the acquirement of negative PCR test result.

In late November, Israeli authorities decided to close the borders to foreigners for two weeks due to a new strain of the Omicron coronavirus. The new rules stipulate a 14-day ban on foreign nationals entering Israel unless they receive special permission from a government commission.
