JERUSALEM, Oct. 21 (Xinhua) -- Israel would be reopened next month to tourists fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to a plan jointly drafted by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's office and tourism and health ministries.

Under the plan, individual tourists who are fully inoculated with vaccines produced by Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Sinovac, and Sinopharm may enter Israel starting from Nov. 1, the prime minister's office said in a statement.

People who have recently recovered from COVID-19 would also be allowed to enter the country if they had received a booster dose of a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization, the statement said.

The plan is subjected to updates "according to developments and the discovery of new variants," and will be brought for final approval of the cabinet later in October, it added.
