TEL-AVIV, 24 October – Israel and the UAE have signed an agreement on the mutual recognition of vaccination certificates and green passports, Israeli Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said.

“Green Passport also to the Emirates. This morning I was delighted to sign with my colleague, the UAE Minister of Health, a green corridor agreement between the two countries. This agreement allows free movement between Israel and the UAE, mutual recognition of vaccination certificates and green passports, without self-isolation and bureaucracy. Good hour, “Horowitz wrote in Twitter

In September, the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s press service reported that Israel and the European Union had reached an agreement on the mutual recognition of vaccination certificates.
Israel closed borders to foreign tourists in March 2020. From January to February 2021, Ben Gurion Airport was completely closed, including for returning Israelis.
In May 2021, the arrival of the first group of foreign tourists from the United States, consisting of 12 Christian pilgrims, was reported. In addition, it was expected that foreign vaccinated tourists would be able to privately enter Israel from July 1, but due to the spread of the Delta strain, the decision was postponed.
In October, it was decided to receive tourists vaccinated with vaccines, which are approved WHO… The list of vaccines approved at the meeting included Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Sinovac and Sinopharm, as well as Janssen. Tourists will be able to enter the country after completing a full course of vaccination. The Russian Sputnik V vaccine is not mentioned in the document.
