UK and Denmark Will Be Added to List of ‘Red’ Countries

The Israeli Government announced earlier today  that as of Wednesday, December 15, the UK and Denmark will be added to list of ‘red’ countries due to the “rapid increase” in cases of the Omicron variant.

The decision came a day after coalition party leaders agreed to update the list of banned countries daily (!). This  move is expected to reduce flights abroad by making it difficult to plan trips in advance and puts every travel to Israel in the coming weeks at a risk.

Under the Israeli COVID-19 Entry Restrictions, entry to Israel is banned for foreign nationals visiting a red country in the last 14 days before arrival in Israel. 

Non-Israelis who visited a red country in the last 14 days, will be denied entry to Israel unless they petition the Exceptions Committee successfully. In such cases, the isolation will be needed to be done at State COVID-19 designated motels. 

The move could reduce international travel by making it increasingly difficult to plan trips in advance.
