Israel to Accept Russian Tourists Vaccinated With Sputnik V 

Tourists from Russia vaccinated with two doses of the Sputnik V vaccine will be able to enter Israel from December 1, 2021, according to a joint statement by the Israeli Health and Tourism Ministry and the office of the Israeli Prime Minister. The Russian vaccine itself has been recognized by Israel starting on November 15, 2021.  

“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,” the statement said.

As reminded, since March 2020, Israel has been virtually closed to tourism. Entry into the country was only possible for returning citizens or foreigners who received special permission. Since May, as part of a pilot programme, several organized foreign travel groups have been admitted to the country, fully vaccinated with US-approved vaccines.

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 open borders for tourists vaccinated with Sputnik V as well.
