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.

I arrived Friday morning at 4am and no one in Israel asked to see anything other than my passport. Virgin Atlantic checked my CDC Vaccine card and my negative COVID test. I needed to get an initial border control admission card, just showed my passport after the machine told me to see a person. Then while i was on line for the next border check, a really long line for foreigners, some man came up two me and asked me for my passport and started grilling me. He even asked me if I was Baal Teshuva. Iím not. But, after his questions he told me to just go pass and I didnít have to talk to anyone in the booth. I got my bag, took my cornona test and went to yerushalayim and got my negative test around 2:30. It seems i wasted $15 on insurance I didnt need.
They brought back the passport line? Whatever for?

I was there mid January. How long of a while? You already get your entry ticket earlier, so they just had a couple of points where that was checked, but no lines.

Everyone must get a ticket at the machines upstairs.
Then down the 'hill', Israeli passport holders go straight to luggage, but others add going to another control where borders agent sometime double check documents etc

It was like that in mid January as well. You might have come on an off day. At the end of the downhill people movers Israelis go straight out while foreign passports need to queue up unless they have a visa in which case they immediately get a gate pass and can leave right away.

Yes, Israeli citizens went straight and foreigners went to the right. It was really a long line since it looked like maybe 2 or 3 booths open. I was really saved by that agent coming up to me.

Ok, we had this conversation up thread already. Depends on the day end flights. Both times I came in the last few months all the booths were closed and deserted and I had no issues, and others apparently did. The sign for foreigners to the right was there, but it was a 10 second checkpoint.

Ichud Hatzalah in JLM.  Get antigen test. Takes 15 minutes to get results.  Believe they are open 24 hours.

Are the airlines asking to see vaccine cards before boarding?

Is a baby under 1 subject to quarantine when going to Israel?  Obviously not vaccinated.  And if so, how long for?
