The move was the latest step towards normalcy for Israel, which has fully vaccinated more than half of its roughly 9.3 million residents against coronavirus, the world's fastest per capita pace.
From Tuesday through April 12, 300 Israelis will be allowed through Taba on the Red Sea each day.
To cross, individuals must be inoculated or have recovered from Covid-19. A negative laboratory test is also required in both directions.
Israel's successful vaccination rollout has been making gains against the virus.
The number of serious coronavirus cases, which stood at 800 at the end of last month, has fallen to 467, according to the health ministry.
