Israel, Greece reach deal to allow travel between countries for the vaccinated

Israel and Greece announce a deal to mutually recognize each others’ “green passports,” enabling the vaccinated to travel freely between the two countries.

The policy is “without any limitations, no self-isolation, nothing,” says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a press conference alongside his Greek counterpart.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis congratulates Netanyahu on Israel’s vaccination drive and says he looks forward to welcoming Israeli tourists to Greece when travel restrictions are lifted.

The tourism deal between Israel and Greece is signed at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem.
