Israelis excluded as EU reopens borders

The European Union today approved opening its borders to tourists from 14 countries but Israeli passport holders have been excluded from the list because of its high Covid-19 infection rate. From tomorrow, July 1, tourists will be allowed to enter EU countries without any need for self-isolation from: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Rwanda, Uruguay, Georgia, Montenegro, Serbia, Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.

UK citizens can enter because it is still officially a member of the EU even though it was not consulted about the reopening of the borders.
