Israel is tightening entry regulations for non-Israeli citizens, and the sports industry will also be affected by it. Without a vaccination/recovery certificate or a commitment to be vaccinated, a person will not be allowed to enter Israel, according to Sport5.

As a result, the unvaccinated player will be required to sign a document in which he would be required, together with the employing team, to be vaccinated upon arrival in Israel.

Seven-day isolation will also be required after coming into the country.

The director of the Israel basketball league declared: "The new guidelines of the Ministry of Health indicate that a foreign player who comes to Israel will present a vaccination or recovering certificate and if he does not, he will have to sign an undertaking that he will be vaccinated. One of the reasons it was decided to postpone the opening of the league for a week - to give the teams extra preparation time."

As reported before, the start of the campaign has been delayed by a week due to the health and safety guidelines issued by the Israeli government.
