Nordic nation to recognize 'green passport' for visitors from Jewish state starting Monday

Sweden announced that starting Monday it will allow entry for vaccinated Israelis by recognizing the "green passport" after imposing a temporary ban on all travelers from the Jewish state due to rising Covid-19 infections.

The Scandinavian nation had instituted the total travel ban on September 6 for Israel, the United States and four other countries that was set to expire on October 31 unless extended.

The move followed the European Union's recommendation to its 27 member states to reimpose travel restrictions on Israel and seven other countries due to rising coronavirus infections.
