ISRAEL IS NOW OPEN to all travellers residing in the UAE, the Israel Ministry of Tourism announced last month.
All vaccinated and unvaccinated tourists of all ages are permitted to enter Israel upon presenting a negative PCR test before departure and after arriving in Israel. The announcement follows a recent agreement between the UAE and Israel extending visa-free entry to all UAE nationals as part of the ongoing strategic partnership between both countries.
Air connectivity between the UAE and Israel is ramping up: flydubai operates 14 flights a week, twice a day, between Dubai and
Tel Aviv-Yafo and both Etihad Airways and Wizz Air offer direct flights from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv-Yafo. Travellers can also opt for Israeli airlines like El-AL, Israir, Arkia Airlines for direct connectivity between both destinations.
Emirates has confirmed that it will be commencing daily services to Tel Aviv from June 23, operating a three-class Boeing 777-300ER on the route from Dubai.
