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.

Quick clarification:
Antigen test for returning to Israel IS Acceptable, provided it is done within 24 hours and at an official testing facility. You can't do it at home.

as of now a us citizen (student visa) even if he is fully vaxxed in israel, cannot leave to the usa if he plans on coming back while the usa is still red.
does anyone know if he gets vaadat charigim permission to leave, will that automatically allow him to return?

According to Chaim v'Chessed's latest update (https://chaimvchessed.com/updates/red-countries-latest-updates/), yes - but these rules change so often so YMMV...
In a new development, visa holders are now permitted to apply to the Exceptions Committee for permission to leave Israel, for the same urgent categories that Israelis may apply for. Should they be granted an exit permit, this will essentially serve as an entry permit for them to return to Israel after travel to the Red country.

That immediately follows their flat-out refusal to allow me - a US citizen - to travel to the US for a family simcha this weekend. There's no logic or science in the whole system anymore.

I was waiting for someone to say that. I guess it's worth a shaila. Even if it may be excusable in these types of situations, we don't want to become accustomed to anything but absolute honesty.

It's not relevant for me at this point as I had wanted to fly out this past Thursday night and stay until tomorrow.

If I would just show my US passport, pretending not to be Israeli, what would happen?

They have their ways of figuring out if your Israeli or not.
If you do lie and they catch you prob not to do good.

Separate ticket is OK with them?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
