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.

Per the exception committee website, somebody who is only a foreign citizen, never needs a permit to leave. That would include foreign citizens whose center of life is in Israel and have Bituach Leumi. There is a simple logic to it, because the prohibition to exit is to prevent citizens returning after they exit, but somebody who is not Israeli can be prohibited from returning regardless of where they live and Bituach Leumi, as is the case now.

You can always fall on a rogue agent though.
Thanks.

LH690 left FRA this evening with only tens of pax, most didn't board. LH claim due to lack of documents and the plane needing to land before TLV night curfew. Anyone have more details?

Trying to juggle legalities.

LH is known to be very finicky with documents (and the Israeli gov very resistant to reissuing them when they aren't done correctly and don't satisfy LH), so it's very plausible that dozens of people were denied over it.

LY356 FRA-TLV on 2/24 & 3/3 is scheduled to land at 23:55, so it's hard to believe there is any curfew issue. Some articles have already restated the LH reason as 'operational'.

It's not clear if the pax have all been rebooked, there doesn't appear to be space on any flights from Europe into Israel until March 3 (LY FRA-TLV)

Depending where they came from, most of these pax would still be allowed into London now.

When Israeli media wakes up, they are likely to find some striking stories of people with emergency travel.

At the airport, who is deciding who goes and who stays?
Is it pikud oref at the entrance of the airport or misrad apnim during passport control?
I would think that it's by check in.
