The Israeli Ministry of Health will begin issuing electronic “green passports” to citizens of the country who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus from January 17 next year, RIA Novosti reports.
Green Passport is a mobile application that can be activated seven days after the second dose of the vaccine is administered.
This document will become a permit for Israelis to travel abroad and will free them from the need to observe self-isolation after returning from countries with a high incidence of COVID-19 and after contact with an infected person inside Israel.
Last Sunday, the third lockdown since the start of the pandemic began to operate in Israel.
The restrictions will last for at least two weeks or until the daily increase in incidence decreases from the current 4 thousand to 1 thousand cases per day.
Residents are prohibited from leaving their homes further than a kilometer, with the exception of a number of cases, as well as visiting and visiting relatives.
The country has closed non-grocery stores, canceled leisure activities and partially restricted the operation of public transport.
