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.

*זרים לא מחוסנים/ לא מחלימים* (לפי הגדרת משרד הבריאות) לא יורשו להיכנס לישראל.

*זרים ממדינות אדומות*, למעט מי שכניסתם אושרה על ידי ועדת החריגים, לא יורשו להיכנס לישראל.

*מתווה הקבוצות* לא יחודש בשלב זה.


*עדכון רשימת המדינות האדומות*

הוועדה לסיווג מדינות במשרד הבריאות ממליצה לממשלה הוועדה ממליצה *להסיר* מרשימת המדינות האדומות ולהעביר לרשימת הכתומות את המדינות: *דרום אפריקה, הונגריה, ניגריה, ספרד, פורטוגל, צרפת, קנדה.*

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.




Has anyone tried a proctored antigen test like EMed?

Triple vaxxed in Israel. Was told that would be released as soon as test came back negative. "Whats the big deal? Its only for a few hours". Took test at 7pm Thurs. When it became clear I wouldnt get results before shabbos, I decided to jailbreak.

There was talk of them starting to charge the travelers for the hotel stay. Did that idea get implemented?
