Our Culinary Experience is the next one to be finalized and we'll let you know as soon as that's ready!
OK, where do we stand now with travel to Israel as of November 1st.
Here are the latest details, which can always change! Reporting as I know it today from the Tourism Ministry.
Tourism will be open to ALL as of November 1st. Meaning, you do not need to be part of a tour group to travel to Israel. HOWEVER ...
Tourists will be classified into two categories: 1. Vaccinated - you have received the booster or received to shots, both within 6 mos of your travel date; 2. Non-Vaccinated - have had 2 shots but not the 3rd
Non vaccinated children will not be allowed into Israel
Vaccinated Travelers - you are free to enter as of November 1st. There will be a new online system where you upload your vaccinated card and then you will receive a Green Pass to be able to travel freely within Israel. They recommend starting the process 14 days prior to travel and the Green Pass is good for 1 month from the date of receipt. You may extend the Green Pass when you are in Israel
Non-Vaccinated Travelers must travel with a group and remain with the group the entire time - very strict guidelines and regulations. If anyone is interested in the details, please email me. Happy to share.
Everyone must be masked at all times at all indoor venues
No day trips to and from Petra. You may exit Israel by land to Petra but there is no re-entrance to Israel via land border. You must fly out through Jordan. We do anticipate this changing but they are maintaining this safety measure for the time being
The 5 Senses Tour® will continue to maintain our committment of providing our travelers with the "onece-in-a-lifetime" experience that we are know for! If, for any reason, we feel that this is not possible, based on the situation or parameters required by the Israeli Ministry of Tourism, we reserve the option to postpone the trip until we feel that we can. Your continued understanding and patience during these times is so appreciated.
Should you have any questions, please reach out!
Stay safe, stay healthy and stay tuned!
