Transportation Ministry plan would see airport reopen from Sunday

The Transportation Ministry plans to allow Israelis to enter the country to vote in the March 23 elections, beginning Sunday, according to Hebrew media reports.

The ministry plan, which is set to be presented to the cabinet, will also enable Israelis to leave the country, though not to high-infection countries listed by the government.

Israelis who enter the country who are not vaccinated will be forced to self-isolate in the state-run hotels or quarantine at home with an electronic bracelet, reports say.

Israel’s main international airport has been mostly shuttered since late January, with the government approving exceptions on a case-by-case basis.
