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.

Re: Israel (Not) Reopening To Foreigners
« Reply #1403 on: February 28, 2021, 12:36:19 PM »
I'm having trouble finding a reliable source for the current travel rules for our situation. We are Israeli citizens, but we live in the US so we have been vaccinated here in the US- both doses, one of us Pfizer and one of us Moderna. We have paper certificates proving vaccination. I understand that while the airport is closed, even Israelis need to apply for permission to enter which we probably would not get- but once the airport is open, would we be able to enter without the need for quarantine or quarantine hotels? I have heard that for those vaccinated abroad, they are doing a serological test to prove strength of antibodies, and if you pass you don't need to isolate, but I have not seen this anywhere official. Has anyone heard of this and/or knows where I can find the official rules for such a test- how long it takes, rules until results come back, etc?

Thanks! May this all come to an end soon.

No NOTAM issued for extension of foreign ban. It's been issued monthly since March 2020.
When does the current NOTAM expire?

Not sure about the NOTAM, but the government restrictions on flights expire March 7 and the quarantine hotels on March 5.

On March 4th the Israeli Supreme Court is hearing multiple cases against the border restrictions, and in any case the government announced it will remove all restrictions on Israeli passengers prior to the March 23 elections.

Tomorrow. But I suppose the airport closure NOTAM through March 6th supercedes it?

Elections? When?

People still come to Israel to vote? Or this is just an excuse to get in easier?
