Tourists from Russia vaccinated with two doses of the Sputnik V vaccine will be able to enter Israel starting December 1, 2021, subject to a number of conditions after technical and legal entry procedure issues are resolved, according to a joint statement by Israeli health and tourism ministry and the office of the Israeli Prime Minister, issued on Monday, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
However, the Russian vaccine itself has been recognized by Israel starting on November 15.
“Technical and legal issues have been discovered in the existing entry procedure for foreign tourists, which means that it will be possible for tourists vaccinated with Sputnik V to come to Israel starting December 1, 2021. By then, system synchronization will be established, legal formulations and obligations have been completed, and the entry mechanism will work without problems in order to take care of the health of both Israeli citizens and tourists, providing them with comfortable conditions and a pleasant travel experience. We made the decision that Israel will officially recognize the Russian Sputnik V vaccine on November 15, 2021,” the statement said.
“Two weeks ago, Israel opened its doors to tourists vaccinated with WHO-recognized vaccines. In light of the successful vaccination of the Israeli population with a third dose and a low incidence of disease, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, together with Minister of Health Nitzan Horowitz and Minister of Tourism Yoel Razvozov made a decision to remove additional restrictions and open borders for tourists vaccinated with Sputnik V and who received a positive antibody test,” the statement said.
