The governments of the Kingdom of Bahrain and the State of Israel reached today an agreement regarding mutual recognition of vaccination and the green passport, and this agreement is the first of its kind between the two countries, and it represents a global precedent for a bilateral agreement for the mutual recognition of vaccination certificates.
This agreement was reached after talks between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the State of Israel that took place in recent weeks, headed by His Excellency Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Mr. Gabi Ashkenazi, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Israel, as well as contacts between the Israeli Embassy in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Health in both countries.
According to the agreement, people who have been vaccinated in both countries who have received vaccinations recognized in the other country will be exempt from quarantine, and they will also be able to enter places that require a "green passport." In the second phase, arrangements will be made for people who have been vaccinated with a vaccine that is not recognized by one of the two countries.
The identification process will be carried out digitally, which will greatly facilitate entry into both countries. This agreement will contribute to strengthening the tourism, trade and economic relations between the two countries.
