I had the same issue. It was a motzei shabbos and I was freaking out, because there was no time. I left to the airport without it, and tried again in the car a few times (from my iphone) and it eventually submitted.  You will then receive an email. I think it was a glitch on their end.  Keep trying....
If no luck show them your phone in the airport

thanks, its just so frustrating. spent over an hour on it already. that form and entire website sucks.

Just wondering, when it said they were catching people with fake ishurs, when did they find it. It sounds like there is only a quick glance on the American side of the ocean

the problem isnt getting on the plane, the problem is getting thru passport control when your name isnt in the system of the authorized

having issues submitting the online entry form required within 24 hours of departure.
Filled out all the info, clicked "finish" but i keep getting the circling icon and it never goes through nor proceeds to the confirmation.
Tried multiple browsers and even 2 different computers, and still no luck.

did anyone else encounter this issue?
are there hard copy forms that can be filled out at the airport if i can't get the online submission to work?
flight in a few hours, so would appreciate the help.
tia
having same issue

Actually the woman at checkin took my paper and went to speak to someone about it before she came back and said it was ok.  Not sure why

having same issue

been trying for 2 hours now.
and no customer support over night before the flight.
i'm curious what happens if this doesnt get fixed.
i find it hard to believe that the american airlines agents at the airport will have a proper answer or will be able to offer a solution.

Other than the רבש"ע, I don't believe so.

אוי, משהו קרה..
נוכח תקלת תקשורת אזורית, אין גישה לחלק משירותי משרד הבריאות. אנא נסו שוב מאוחר יותר. עקב התקלה לא נדרש למלא טופס לנכנסים לישראל. כל עוד הטופס לא זמין, תתאפשר העלייה לטיסה ללא הצגת הטופס. מתנצלים ומודים מראש על הסבלנות.

I never filled out the form, they asked me for it at checkin, but got busy with my other papers and forgot to make sure I had it. When I landed in Israel they sent me to a table where a lady asked me for it I told her I did not fill it out, so she filled out for me over there on the spot. It didnt seem like it was a big deal to her that I did not fill it out. So as long as you have something to show them when you check in, it shouldnt be a problem when you land.

can you please elaborate with more details

Many other people confirmed for me as well, so I guess it's not news. A2 and A4 visas can leave and enter without any special permission.

most of the passangers didnt have the form. AA delayed everyone from checking in for about an hour until they got approval to let folks board without a completed form. so in the ned it worked out, just little bit of inconvenince.

Thanks

Israeli bureaucracy at its best.

Isn't that form mostly to declare where one will be quarantining (which no-one does anymore)?
