Israel has revoked all green passports issued to date as new guidelines were issued.

The new guidelines limit COVID-19 immunity status only to those who have recovered naturally or received their last vaccination within the last six months.

At least 1.5 million Israelis lost their green passports as the new rules went into effect on Sunday, according to the Jerusalem Post. However, Channel 12 News put the number at nearly 2 million.

Under the new guidelines, a person will only maintain their immunity status for six months after the second or third dose of the vaccine. People with natural immunity also receive a passport. However, they must get a vaccination six months after their recovery or they will lose the privilege.

Individuals who are not inherently immune or vaccinated, including children under the age of 12 who are not yet eligible for vaccination, may receive a limited seven-day passage after a negative PCR test.

The results of a rid antigen test are only valid for 24 hours.

Israeli officials were recently caught admitting that the passport system did not work in many situations “Medically justified” but exists to pressure more citizens to get vaccinated.

Indeed, Israel is a world leader in vaccinations and booster programs. By Friday, out of a population of around 9.2 million, over 5.6 million Israelis had been vaccinated with two doses and nearly 3.5 million had already received their third vaccination.
