Israel issues ‘severe’ travel warning for UAE

The Israeli Ministry of Health has issued a “severe” travel warning for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over the concerns of the Covid-19 spread.

The UAE has become one of the most popular destinations for Israeli tourists since a normalization agreement was signed between the two countries in September 2020, reports Xinhua news agency.

Besides the UAE, there are currently “severe” travel warnings from Israel to over 10 countries.

The Ministry warned on Wednesday that if the situation in those countries does not improve, they could be added to the list of those countries to which Israelis are barred from traveling.

Israel has already banned travel to six countries, which are Argentina, Brazil, South Africa, India, Mexico, and Russia.

Israeli citizens and permanent residents who want to travel to the six destinations must apply to an exceptions committee.

All passengers arriving in Israel from these countries must go into quarantine, including those vaccinated and recovered from the virus.

Meanwhile, the Ministry removed the “severe” travel warning for Peru.
