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.

Might be pretty safe if you show two negative tests from the past 5 days, and you take a 3rd test at airport + quarantine for a few days.

Which means you can get infected the day before you fly and test negative on everything.

Lol that's why I deleted my post. But I'm sure theres some creative way to manage this better.. just to close up until a vaccine is also not realistic

How does it help if someone can take 10 days to turn positive?

Obviously no guarantee, but let's say they figure it will weed out 90% of cases, it's worth it to open up to tourism etc.

The economy is tanking,  long term it's not sustainable.

The current info in the Mir is that they are opening a campus for (at least some of) the bachurim in Switzerland.
The rumor is that the owners of the Arosa Hotel have rented/given it to the Mir until Pesach.
(based on emails that they sent out + conversations with some of the magidei shiur)
Unknown to me at this time, if this is just for European bachurim, or all chutznekim.

I don't believe Americans are allowed into Switzerland, so that should be your answer

If you guys think getting in and out of Israel is a hassle, it's a piece of cake compared to some other countries (such as Australia).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Any thoughts on this?
Very likely to happen IMO. The only problem is Israel cannot maintain the current trajectory for much longer before hospitals collapse (600-900 patients in serious condition)

Is there anyone in the government who is talking about the economic destruction?

And its official. They're allowing entry
anyone hear anything about the requirements for this? Are they free after a 2 week quarantine or are the seminaries and yeshivos going to have to operate under a capsule system like some of the Israeli yeshivos are doing? I don't think that would make for a very pleasant seminary or yeshiva experience.

Israel has 300 patients in serious condition. It dropped yesterday to under 300 bh.
