Sweden announced that from Monday it will allow entry for vaccinated Israelis by recognizing the “green passport” after imposing a temporary ban on all Israeli travelers due to increasing Covid-19 infections.
The ban, which took effect on September 6, followed the European Union’s recommendation to its 27 member states to reintroduce travel restrictions for Israel and seven other countries due to increasing coronavirus infections.
However, the authorities decided last week to allow travelers from Israel, Albania, Andorra, the Faroe Islands, Morocco, Monaco and Panama to enter according to the same rules as EU citizens because Sweden will recognize the vaccine certificates issued by their respective governments.
Israel announced that the Green Pass is only valid from October 3, which has received three doses of the coronavirus vaccine
“The government has decided on changes to the temporary entry ban to Sweden. The changes mean that additional people who can present vaccination certificates issued in certain designated countries and areas are exempted from the entry ban and the test requirement “, it says in a statement from the Ministry of Justice.
Holders of a vaccine passport will no longer need to take a Covid-19 test before entering Sweden and will no longer need quarantine after entering the country.
The vaccine passport must state that the visitor was immunized with a vaccine dose that has been officially recognized by Sweden.
