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.

Wow. So these were Israelis that entered Switzerland with what kind of passport, and what was the quarantine requirement?

The land borders are open. Switzerland may arrest upon landing there in the future though

From today's announcement that travelling from a "green" country won't require isolation in Israel -- the Israeli government's website seems to suggest that foreign nationals ARE allowed in provided they have a letter from their local consulate.  With that letter coupled with arriving from a green country -- you would not need to self isolate. 

https://www.gov.il/en/Departments/Guides/flying-to-israel-guidlines

Does anyone know how to get such a letter from a local consulate?  What are the requirements??
