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 Ė 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.

No letter from school saying classes resumed.
We got the Ishur by sending in all necessary docs to the consulate.
The approval was dated Sunday. We received it Monday (The approval came from israel, while NY consulate isnít open on Sunday), for Tuesday flight.
My wife and I are both US citizens.

Few weeks ago. Yes they kept asking for diff docs in diff formats. They closed Sunday. Iíve gotten response on a Friday, but not really helpful, as they are just forwarding all information to Jerusalem.

Then I think you'll have to get
 permission,  but it should be much easier.

Just heard first hand account from a family that own an apartment in Israel, and one parent is an Israeli citizen, that they were declined entry till they prove that they tested negative for Covid19, and tested positive for antibodies.
