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.

Anyone know if during this ban you can go back to applying as a first degree relative?
i dont think this is known yet- but i just read that  if they were to enter in after the ban, they will need quarantine for ten days.
(im trying to find the source).

in the meantime, jereusalem post said

It's about time we remind them who pays their bills, enough of this nonsense where unless you are a celebrity or wealthy you can't go

My understanding is that the rules take effect at midnight on Sunday night, so the borders officially close then. I wouldn't risk boarding a plane that lands on Monday.

According to Chaim V'Chesed, those departing today will be able to enter the country tomorrow. Additionally, MAJOR DEVELOPMENT - those who are vaccinated/recovered and hold valid student visas are exempt from the new rules and can still enter the country (unclear what quarantine rules if any would apply).

Insanity. Rash decision without any definitive plans for exemptions. And if they are serious about locking down the country, why let Israelis travel outbound and then come back in- aren't they also at-risk for bringing back the Omicron variant???
Hours later, the government then makes these one-off decisions here and there, leaving everyone scrambling. Horribly executed.
Except for the Miss Universe contestants (to be held in Eilat)- they are all getting exemptions! Shameful

If it was me, i wouldn't risk shleping to Israel with the risk of being sent back, based solely on a LY source. My 2 cents  :)

Even if they fly in tonight and land, i wouldnt not be surprised if they are required to take a very strict form of isolation/ quartine once they get there.
Anyone thinks they are flying in under old rules will be surprised once they get there
