The Republic of Seychelles today (Saturday) defined Israel as a "green state". Israelis will be able to visit the country without the need for isolation, if they sign a health declaration 72 hours before leaving Israel, including a negative COVID-19 test.

Direct flights to the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean will start on the eighteenth of the month.

Two days ago, the Greek government announced a full closure for three weeks. At the same time, the Ministry of Health in Israel announced that following the sharp rise in morbidity in Greece, an obligation to isolate would apply to visitors returning to Israel.

Serbia has also been marked in Israel as a red state, when in fact only Rwanda and the Seychelles now allow Israelis to enter its territory and return to Israel without the obligation of isolation.
