The Israel Ministry of Tourism is beginning to take steps to plan the reopening of its domestic tourism sector.
At a special meeting chaired by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on April 27th, it was agreed that on May 3rd, 2020, hotels and accommodations with ground-floor rooms will resume operations, marking the first step in the tourism industry’s return to activity.
The return to activity will be subject to several measurable health and safety factors. It was also agreed that in the coming days guidelines will be formulated together with the Ministry of Health, for operating hotels and accommodations during the COVID-19 period.
‘’The decision to gradually reopen the tourism sector is an important one and shows the great importance of this industry. We hope that we will be also able to welcome Canadians soon to experience amazing Israel," said’ Gal Hana, Israeli Consul of Tourism for Canada. “Tourism and travel are big and important sectors in the Israeli economy, especially in recent years with record breaking number of tourists who chose Israel as their favourite destination.”
