Israelis are now banned from visiting the UK, Georgia, Cyprus and Turkey according to coronavirus cabinet rules.
The four countries will join a growing list of places Israelis are not allowed to fly to; if caught doing so, they face a substantial fine on return. The decision will take effect next Friday.
Turkey and Cyprus are two of the most popular vacation destinations for Israelis.
Due to the high COVID morbidity in these countries, Israelis are already prohibited from traveling to Russia, Mexico, South Africa, India, Argentina, Brazil, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Spain and Kyrgyzstan.
