Israel, UK weighing ‘green travel corridor’ for vaccinated, recovered — ministry

Israel says Jerusalem and London are weighing the possibility of allowing travel between the countries for vaccinated and recovered individuals, citing both countries’ successful inoculation campaigns, as a senior British minister visits the Jewish state.

A Foreign Ministry statement cites Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi as saying: “We will promote, together with the UK, mutual recognition of vaccines in order to allow tourists and business people from both countries to safely return to their routines,” according to Reuters.

The ministry says this opens the “possibility of creating a green travel corridor.”

Askenazi met British Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove in Jerusalem, according to the report.
