Israel placed the US, France, Italy, France, Germany, Greece and several other countries under severe travel warning, the Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee approved on Tuesday afternoon following the recommendation by the Health Ministry.
Starting from Friday, all travelers entering Israel from these countries are going to be required to isolate for a minimum of seven days even if they are fully vaccinated or recovered.
The full list of nations which were approved to be added to the list features Ukraine, Italy, Iceland, Eswatini, United States, Botswana, Bulgaria, Germany, Netherlands, Tanzania, Greece, Malawi, Egypt, Czech Republic, France, Cuba, Rwanda and Tunisia.
The list of countries under severe travel warning – or colored orange – currently includes Cambodia, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Fiji, Georgia, Great Britain, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Liberia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Namibia, Panama, Paraguay, Seychelles, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

However, according to the recommendation, Seychelles, Zambia, Paraguay, Costa Rica, Uganda, Liberia, Panama and Kenya are going to be removed from the list.
Israelis are allowed to travel to orange countries, but they need to quarantine when they return – for 14 days, which can be shortened to seven with two negative PCR tests.
The countries considered the highest level of risk – or red – are placed under travel ban.
Israelis are prohibited from visiting those countries unless they obtain permission from the governmental Exceptions Committee.
The list currently includes Argentina, Belarus, Brazil, Cyprus, Georgia, Great Britain, India, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Russia, Spain, South Africa, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
Currently Israel determines the status of a country based on a combination of the local level of morbidity and coronavirus trends on the one hand, and on the number of infected inbound travelers from that nation entering Israel on the other. The rate of infected among the travelers is also considered.
According to the data presented by the Health Ministry during the committee’s meeting, some 57,025 passengers arrived in Israel from the US in the past month. Of those, some 141 resulted to be infected with the virus, or 0.25%.
Moreover, the US currently presents a weekly average of 155 cases per million people, 1736 active cases per million people according to epidemiological model developed by Imperial College London (ICL) and 969 according to the one by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).
Regarding France, some 17,429 passengers traveled to Israel and 42 of them were found infected (or 0.24%). In addition, France currently presents a weekly average of 262 cases per million people, 224 active cases per million people according to the ICL model and 558 according to the IHME one.
Some 11,065 people have traveled to Israel from Italy in the past month, and 0.24% of them resulted infected – 27 travelers. Italy currently has a weekly average of 67 cases per million people, 181 active cases per million people according to the ICL model and 95 according to the IHME one.
