Unfortunately, Israel has reportedly decided not to move forward with plans to reopen their borders to tourists on July 1st. The hope is to reopen in August, though as we’ve seen, you can’t count on that until it happens. This is exactly why I recommended that people should wait before making travel plans or to book tickets that can be freely changed, like award tickets.
Most foreign nationals have been locked out since 3/18/20.
The news comes as Israel faces a growing outbreak of the Delta variant, which is rapidly spreading from India to countries across the globe.
Apparently there is now also a Delta Plus variant…
@Delta executives are all praying they don't call the next mutation Delta One.
