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.

Yup

I still think it's very possible Israel will be wide open for foreigners by Pesach.
Let's try to get foreign nationals/ students back first....  :D

Tomorrow. But I suppose the airport closure NOTAM through March 6th supercedes it?
Anyway for a foreign national to take advantage of this loophole and try to get back in on Wednesday? How do we find out for sure?

Any ruling from Rabbis on what to do about Shabbos?

Well, you need permission to board a flight, which won't be given to foreign nationals.

TBH, after spending a week in this country, I don't see how anyone could be optimistic, except as an inherent trait unrelated to what goes on here.

ALOL. What exactly do you want me to report about? The Israeli bureaucracy? The constantly changing rules? The runaround one gets here when requiring service?

Makes me wonder how in the world people live in this place.
