Israeli authorities have extended the ban on foreigners until December 29. Previous restrictions on exiting were maintained. The reason for this is to prevent the spread of a new strain of the coronavirus, Omicron. According to Report.ge, the information is spread by The Times of Israel.
"The Israeli government has supported the extension of the ban on foreigners entering the country until at least December 29. Initially, the restrictions were valid from November 29 to December 12, and then they were extended for ten days," the publication writes.
According to the media, entry in Israel is possible only in exceptional cases.
In addition, the government has further expanded the "red list" of countries where Israeli citizens are not allowed to travel. The updated list includes Norway, Ireland, Finland, France, Spain, and the United Arab Emirates. Upon arrival from these countries, Israelis must quarantine, regardless of having a coronavirus vaccination certificate.
