Israel will be the first country to issue a “green passport” to residents who have received the COVID-19 vaccine. The passport will lift some restrictions, including mandatory quarantine following exposure to an infected person, and offer access to cultural events and restaurants, according to Israel’s Ministry of Health.
A green passport will be issued by the ministry two weeks after the second of the required two vaccine shots is received by the individual.
These green passports will also allow residents to travel abroad without needing to be tested for the virus. The idea is beginning to spread.
