Link to form that needs to be filled out within 48 hours of flight to Israel

Accordingly, the FINAL criteria For entering Israel are as follows - you must meet ONE of these conditions in order to enter Israel:

1. Vaccinated within 180 days of the trip with either a second vaccine or a booster and it must be at least 14 days after the shot.

2. Recovered within 180 days of the trip with DIGITAL proof of a positive PCR result and more than 11 days have passed since the positive result. This type of proof only exists in the EU. The UK will likely have it as well.

3. Recovered anytime even more than 180 days before the trip - with DIGITAL proof of positive PCR result AND vaccinated with at least one dose within 180 days of the trip. Again at the moment the digital proof only exists in the EU and possibly the UK shortly.

Your vaccination or recovery CANNOT expire while in Israel, which means you may not be in Israel more than 180 days after your vaccine or recovery have expired.

CONSEQUENCES FOR VIOLATING THE TERMS OF ENTRY: VIOLATION OF ANY OF THE ABOVE CRITERIA CAN MEAN SANCTIONS INCLUDING BARRING YOUR ENTRY TO ISRAEL FOR 5 YEARS.

Why can't all boys arriving the same time, quarantine together?

Because its possible that boy one is infected, infects boy two on day 8, who infects boy 3 on day 14. Now boy 3 goes to geulah and stuffs himself into a store and infects six people unknowingly. Then these six people infect forty more and Israel has an outbreak in a population with virtually no built up immunity.

Obviously this is far fetched but its a possibility.

It's not up to airport to decide when flights will resume. This press conference was a complete clown show. Just a few airport officials trying to justify for their high salaries

No
I hear that the Mir sent out an email that they can now apply for a אישור.

Cases in Israel on the rise again 35 yesterday up from 15 the day before, and there seem to be a few clusters at schools.

Per my next door neighbor doctor, most of the increase is in Tel Aviv

Not sure why a doctor is more qualified to provide this information, but it is true per MoH website.

I live in Tel Aviv. Hardly see anyone wearing masks these days and they have reopened everything. So can't say I'm surprised
