Additionally, travellers will no longer be required to go through regular temperature checks while entering the terminal and before boarding.
Israelis travelling abroad from the country will also not be required to submit a request to a special committee for travel approval.
However, they will have to take a Covid-19 test before their return flight.
This change comes after the country’s High Court of Justice (HCJ) cancelled the earlier travel restrictions despite concerns from the Ministry of Health (MOH) that the individuals returning to the country might be infected with coronavirus variants.
Jerusalem Post reported that these new guidelines will be followed for one week and until 28 March.
The Israeli Government has also reopened the Taba Border Crossing between Israel and Egypt on 20 March.
Israeli tourism Minister Farkash-Hacohen tweeted: “After a year of being closed, the Taba Border Crossing will be open. The opening will only take place after logistical preparations are undertaken.”
