Today’s Covid-19 Advisory update from the Israeli Ministry of Health states that effective August 31, Spain and Georgia will be taken off the list of Countries that Israel considers as being the highest risk for coronavirus infection.

This decision enables Spanish and Georgian nationals to travel to Israel either:

  • for business purposes (requiring a special permit to enter Israel for business during COVID 19’ conditions and a ‘B-2 visitor’ visa) or
  • for employment purposes (requiring a work permit and special permission for employees to enter Israel during COVID 19’ conditions).
