It gives you based on the city of the person inviting. I'd rather not say where I live but it was a smaller office.

Another DP: Submitted for some more family members (everyone wants to visit!), 1 was approved in a  abt 3 hrs, the other one is still pending.
Smaller office makes sense. My SIL submitted on Sunday to a misrad that probably has very high demand due to the amount of Americans in that area and we are still waiting to hear back.

many many times but I kept trying it until it worked one time.  Once it downloads you are good to go.

Is there a vaccine against stupidity? Did these people (or whoever sold it to them) honestly think they would pass border control?

When I went last, nobody in Israel checked my form. I'm surprised they were caught.

When talking about non-citizens, non-residents, the border control computers can easily flag those that got permits, no reason to check any paperwork there.

If no permit was issued, regardless of whether one has a physical form with them or not, they won't show on the computer as being authorized to enter. And if they are authorized to enter, they could probably do so without the form (as you did).

I very highly doubt the computers are synced up with the permits. They certainly werent a year ago.

How do you think people were caught?

It's not too hard to flag on the computer only those that got permits, and anyone else with a foreign passport needs questioning. Especially now that the applications are submitted using an online form.

The fact that they were caught is insufficient evidence that it was computers. The Israeli systems all use TZ #s - when the police give a ticket to a foreign passport they have to create a fake TZ # to register it in the system.

What Level antibodies do you need to get out of Bidud? I took a test in the states before to make sure I have.
The report has a number then an "H"
I.e 31H

Each test has its own reference range. Your test should indicate what the reference rage is (I am assuming that the H indicates that it's high). If you are positive (other than borderline) on one you are very likely to be positive on another, regardless of reference range used.

Unless youre positive from vaccination, in which case some antibody tests seem to indicate vaccine antibodies better than others.

Have you seen any DP of someone being positive on a US antibody test and not on an Israeli test?

I have not. The only anomaly that I saw was someone (a recoveree) who took two DIFFERENT antibody tests in the US 10 days apart. Was positive on one and below the threshold on the other. He didn't want to take the risk of not being positive for antibodies in Israel so he took a vaccine (possibly just one dose, like I did).
