Cabinet to vote on proposal that would require Exceptions Committee only for those leaving country

The cabinet will convene tonight to discuss a proposal that would only require traveling Israelis to apply for approval from the Exceptions Committee if they are leaving the country, but not if they are returning, Channel 12 reports.

The plan will increase the number of Israelis allowed into the country daily from 200 to 3,000.

Those entering who are not vaccinated will be able to choose between quarantining in state-run hotels or at home with an electronic bracelet.

However, questions remain whether there are enough hotels and bracelets for the number of entrees expected.

Initially, only a handful of cities will be open for flights to and from Israel, including New York, Frankfurt, Paris, London and Kyiv.
