UAE, Israel planning quarantine-free travel corridor


The UAE and Israeli governments are discussing the prospects of establishing a quarantine-free travel corridor between the countries.

The corridor, which will apply to passengers who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, will facilitate travel for commercial, tourism, and official purposes.

Meetings are currently underway between the foreign affairs ministries of the two countries to negotiate the terms of the agreement.

A final outcome is expected next month.

The two sides affirmed that the latest initiative would increase the level of bilateral exchange in the wake of the historic Abraham Accords Peace Agreement and generate additional opportunities to reinforce economic and people-to-people ties.

The UAE and Israel have also expressed their shared commitment to demonstrate that ending the pandemic requires widespread, effective vaccination and coordination between countries.
