Holidays: Israel now imposes quarantine rules on Britons as UK covid rate spikes

Holidays this year have remained uncertain since the coronavirus pandemic began. The pandemic, which hit earlier this year, caused widespread chaos in the travel sector, causing thousands to miss their holidays. Since then, countries around the world have implemented their own travel restrictions to help halt the spread of the virus.

Israel has categorised 185 other countries and territories as red.

Israel joins a growing list of countries which are imposing quarantine rules on UK arrivals.

Other countries include Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advise against all travel to Gaza, the Sheba’a Farms and Ghajjar and within 500 metres of the border with Lebanon (the ‘Blue Line’) east of Metula, including the northern edge of the town and east of Route 98 along the Syrian border.

“Travellers from countries on Israel’s ‘Green list’ will not be required to self-isolate, unless they have visited a country on Israel’s ‘Red list’ in the past 14 days.

“To exit Israel, you will need to complete an exit form.”

Those returning to the UK will need to self-isolate for 14 days.

Israel has recorded just over 300,000 cases of coronavirus and 2,209 deaths.
