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.

Shaked has been pushing the idea of a electronic bracelet for a while. If government has the courage to enforce this, which I doubt will ever happen, then you can reopen natbag fully immediately

A bracelet is much more reasonable than a hotel. The problem with a bracelet is household members and visitors.

I couldn't agree more. And that's also shaked's argument: that people should be able to choose btw bracelet and motel - and most likely people will prefer bracelet

‏הפגישה בין אדלשטיין, יעקב אשר ונציג המשטרה תתקיים בשעה 12:30.

אצל יעקב אשר שבים ואומרים כי זימון לוועדת החוקה יישלח רק אם בפגישה תציג המשטרה חלופות בידוד ביתי ריאליות.
נזכיר, בלי ועדת החוקה, אין אישור להכניס אנשים שוב לבידוד במלוניות.

This says that those vaccinated and recovered still need a negative test. The ishur clearly states otherwise:

My mother is flying to Israel on DL Motzei Shabbos and recovered from Covid in Israel. Any clarifications would be greatly appreciated.

If traveling with an Israeli passport, DL didn't even look at the "ishur" so I would say she might need a negative PCR. It's impossible to predict anything. Just get a negative PCR.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Electronic tracking bracelets are also problematic on Shabbos.  Anyone thinking of using this option should ask their LOR.

How does one locate the approvals? I have a son with a flight on 3/4 and if it is going to be cancelled I need to rebook him.

I just noticed a change from what I received. It says "valid for two week [sic.]" as opposed to mine that said one week and had me going crazy trying to get it renewed, until I ended up renewing it myself, and not even being asked for it.

Quarantine hotels are back into effect (legally, may take more time for the army to get ready)

Next week Israel will start a bracelet trial for 100 people

This is an old permit, the committee has since been move to the Transportation Ministry

All the outlets reported that the peole who weren't allowed on had all the necessary permits.


Of course, the incompetence is monumental. An LH flight to TLV will somehow figure out how to find somebody who can read Hebrew, but what about people flying into FRA from around the world who need to demonstrate they will be allowed unto the FRA-TLV flight? Especially if they don't have an Israeli passport, the airlines won't carry them to FRA...

A non-Israeli family of 13 (guess if they are frum or not) is being deported from Israel after arriving on UA today with fake entrance permits.

Excellent initiative.
I'm just wondering how many devices they have on hand.
One would need significant capacity in order to scale this project up
