Chaim V’Chessed has learned that France, Norway, Spain, Ireland, Finland, Sweden and UAE will be classified by Israel as Red countries at midnight on December 20 (the night between Sunday and Monday).
Israelis are prohibited from traveling to Red countries. Furthermore, entry to Israel by non-citizens from Red countries is severely restricted. Even visa holders, who are currently permitted to enter Israel, are barred from entering from Red countries, unless they receive special entry permits.
Hence, we advise foreign residents of Israel to carefully consider travel to these countries. Similarly, those intending to return to Israel from these countries should be aware of this possibility, as well.
