Georgia among Israel's 'green' countries list

Georgia is among the 'green' countries from which Israelis may return home without having to go into 14-days mandatory quarantine, announced Minister of Transport of Israel Miri Regevhe who set August 16 as the target date for reopening, reports Israeli media outlet Globes.

The countries in this category were determined in accordance with the rate of infection with Covid-19 prevailing in them. The list of green countries will be revised once every two weeks.

At this stage, the plan to reopen Israel's skies does not include entry for foreign citizens, reported.

In addition to Georgia, Italy, the UK, Germany, Hong Kong, Jordan, Latvia, Lithuania, New Zealand, Estonia, Canada, Rwanda, Denmark, Slovenia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Greece and Austria are on the list of countries from which Israeli citizens may return to Israel without going into isolation.

To note the Council of the European Union updated the list of countries for which travel restrictions should be gradually lifted on July 31 and the list still includes Georgia.

Georgia has opened its borders for travellers from Germany, France, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia unconditionally. All five countries have also opened borders for Georgia.
