Israelis are now banned from visiting the UK, Georgia, Cyprus and Turkey, the coronavirus cabinet rules.

The four countries will join a growing list of places that Israelis may not fly to; if caught doing so they face a significant fine upon return. The decision will take effect next Friday.

Turkey and Cyprus are two of the most popular vacation destinations for Israelis.

Israelis are already banned from traveling to Russia, Mexico, South Africa, India, Argentina, Brazil, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Spain and Kyrgyzstan due to high COVID morbidity in those destinations.
