France suspend all flights with Brazil from April 13. Israel will start allowing limited entry of vaccinated tourist groups from 23 May
Update. Authorities in France have issued orders to suspend all flights with Brazil effective April 13 until further notice due to the spread of a COVID-19 variant strain in that country. It remains unclear as to whether cargo flights will be exempt. Nonessential travel from Australia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and the UK has been allowed to resume. Travel remains suspended to and from all other non-EU-associated countries; limited exceptions are granted for essential travel. All international arrivals must provide a negative result from a COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test taken no more than 72 hours before departure. In addition, arrivals must provide a negative result from a PCR test and complete a travel declaration form. Crossborder workers and freight transporters are exempt from the testing requirement. Permitted travelers arriving from outside the EU travel zone are also requested to self-isolate for seven days on arrival and take a second COVID-19 test at the end of the self-isolation period.

Israel will start allowing the limited entry of vaccinated tourist groups from 23 May. All foreign visitors will be required to present a negative PCR test before boarding a flight to Israel, and a serological test to prove their vaccination upon arrival at Ben-Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv. At a later stage, group entry will be expanded and individual travellers will also be let in, with Israel’s health situation determining the timeline.
