Israel Expected to Recognize Russia’s COVID-19 Vaccines
Today, local media in Israel reported that Israel would likely allow tourists vaccinated with either Sputnik vaccine to enter Israel. The Jerusalem Post confirmed the decision, which would go into effect on November 15, 2021.
The decision was made during a meeting between senior health officials.
Israeli's cabinet would still need to approve the decision. However, no formal announcement has been made.
A report by the N12 television channel owned by Keshet Media Group stated that travelers who are vaccinated with Sputnik will still need to take a serological test on arrival in the country.
However, all travelers must take a PCR test within 72 hours before boarding their flight to Israel and on arrival.
And no later than 24 hours before entry to Israel, prospective visitors must fill out an entry statement form. You must provide your personal information and the people traveling with you, a health declaration, mention whether you are vaccinated or recovered, and provide your isolation address if mandated.
As of October 26, 2021, about 70 countries had authorized the two-dose Sputnik V Vaccine. And the single-dose Sputnik Light vaccine has been recognized in over 15 countries.
