Israel is preparing to welcome tourists for the first time since the peak of the global coronavirus pandemic.
Greek visitors will be the first to return from 1 August following a recent visit from prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakisis.
Meanwhile, Israeli capital Jerusalam is getting ready to reopen to domestic tourists, with various attractions, restaurants and hotels already having opened their doors.
Venues and attractions are, however, reopening within strict health regulations, laid down by Israel’s ministry of health.
Sharon Bershadsky, director of the Israel Government Tourist Office in the UK, said: “We are currently working with travel industry partners and friends in the UK to make sure travel, and Israel, is even more exciting and enjoyable for our UK visitors, and we look forward to welcoming them back soon.”
