Active holidays in Israel: a kaleidoscope of vivid impressions

Israel plans to receive tourists from Russia this year. This was reported by the Israeli Ministry of Tourism. New tourist products and attractions have been prepared for the return of tourists in the country.

Representatives of the Israeli Ministry of Tourism spoke about the new products on Wednesday, January 27, as part of a presentation for partners and the media. It was timed to coincide with Tu B'Shvat - New Year of Trees in Israel.

NEW YEAR - NEW HOPES

Israel's Ministry of Tourism expects inbound tourism to start recovering this year. During the presentation, the director of the department of the Ministry of Tourism of Israel in the Russian Federation and the CIS, Counselor of the Embassy of the State of Israel Vladimir Shklyar said that the ministry adjusted the previous forecast for the better. Recall that earlier in Israel they expected to return tourists only in 2022. Also in 2021, tourists from Russia are expected in Israel.

The rate of vaccination in Israel improved the forecast. The country is the leader in the rate of vaccination against COVID-19. As of January 27, 2,786,202 people received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine. It is 31% of the population of Israel. The second dose of the vaccine was received by 1,377,803 people - 15% of the country's population.

Against the background of active immunization, the Israeli Ministry of Tourism has developed a work plan to resume inbound tourism to the country. The implementation of the plan does not yet have an exact date, but is scheduled for mid-2021

The most affected segments of the economy will be the first to open: hotels, catering, attractions. According to the announced plan, the hotel sector in Israel will be able to open immediately. Hotels will be able to accommodate tourists on condition that guests present a "green passport"/certificate of recovery/negative test for coronavirus, or if they live without common canteens.

Catering establishments should also be the first to open. Restaurants and cafes will be able to work with 50% load indoors or fully loaded outdoors. It is assumed that at the entrance it will be necessary to present a "green passport"/certificate of recovery/negative test for coronavirus.

Immediate discovery of attractions suggested. All nature reserves and attractions will have to operate in accordance with the rules for outdoor assemblies or in accordance with the rule on the provision of a green passport/certificate of recovery/negative test for coronavirus at the entrance.

There is no talk of admitting only coronavirus-vaccinated tourists to Israel.

Let us remind you that at the moment Israel practically does not accept foreigners. Ben Gurion Airport is closed from January 26 and for at least a week. The exception will be humanitarian cases, cargo and fire flights.

Active holidays in Israel are diving, yachting, off-road racing in the desert and much more. The addresses of the clubs and the cost of the pleasures are attached.

Israel expects that mass vaccination of the population against coronavirus will allow the borders to be fully opened in mid-2021. This opens up the prospect of the return of tours to Israel on the Russian market in the winter season 2021/22.

MASS VACCINATION HELPS BORDER OPENING

According to the Department of the Ministry of Tourism of Israel in the Russian Federation and the CIS, Israel will resume international tourism from March 2021. Thus, Israelis who have passed two stages of vaccination and received a "green passport" will be able to travel without the need to go through quarantine and pass a PCR test for COVID-19 before departure and after landing.

The country's authorities are preparing to restart inbound tourism based on the success of the national vaccination against COVID-19. According to the director of the department of the Ministry of Tourism of Israel in the Russian Federation and the CIS, Vladimir Shklyar, as of February 4, about 37% of all citizens of the country received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, the second dose - about 21%.

At the first stage, Israel will launch overseas travel in the format of "tourist corridors". These will be countries ready to receive tourists vaccinated against COVID-19 without special conditions.

WHEN ISRAEL LETS RUSSIAN TOURISTS

According to preliminary data, Israel will open to international travelers this summer.

“We are optimistic about the future and expect the full opening of the borders in mid-2021,” emphasizes Mr. Shklyar.

In the department of the Ministry of Tourism of Israel in the Russian Federation and the CIS, Vestnik ATOR was told that there are expectations that citizens of the Russian Federation will also be allowed to enter the country. Under what conditions is not clear yet. It is also not known whether there will be any preferences for Russians vaccinated against coronavirus.

Perhaps these conditions will be formed based on the experience of receiving tourists within the "tourist corridors".
