It’s hard to believe it’s already Pesach and over a year into the pandemic – but we do have an important update from the Israel Ministry of Tourism:
“Not surprising, Israel is emerging as a leader in the efforts to vaccinate. As of today, 60% of the population has received at least one dose of the vaccine and 50% of the population is fully vaccinated. This is very encouraging and great news as we look to travel to resume. While we do not currently have a definitive date or guidelines for opening, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Tourism are working hard on the next steps of travel. We are hopeful that sometime in June the first tourists will be back in Israel. Regarding the guidelines of opening, we expect further information after Passover. Currently the Ministries of Health and Tourism are gathering information to make decisions on the safest way to open.”
Israel Discovery Tours is looking forward to start sending passengers as soon as Israel is open. We have many reservations for our Fall Adult tours and our Family Bar-Bat Mitzvah December tours are very heavily booked already. We think it’s going to be an extremely busy end of the year!!
