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 Ė 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.

Where can I get the COVID insurance coverage Israel requires?
Posted multiple links but honestly they do not ask for it anywhere, I havenít seen any reports of people getting asked, and on the slim chance they ask for it you can just purchase it on the spot online for a couple of dollars.

Most people are saying that nobody is asking or enforcing this requirement, but if you want to get it...

Choose high deductible and the policy will be very inexpensive

When everybody is a VIP, nobody is a VIP

That more or less sums up Israel.

I didnít go through all the policies, but the first several listed donít work for NY residents. I found insurance for $50 for two people for two weeks. Website is sevencorners.com

You need to fill out the online form that they link to within 48 hours of your flight, or else you wonít be allowed to check in for your flight. You also need a negative PCR within 72 hours if checkin.

Yes unless he was out of Israel for less  than 72 hours or he had a positive result in the last 3 months.

Been like that for a while. You only get a green pass if you are vaccinated/recovered and  that isn't a prerequisite to enter Israel so a entry form is enough. I don't even know why they bother with green passes at all nowadays. Where is there just entry exclusively for ppl with green pass?

Green pass basically means you are confirmed recently vaccinated or recovered *in Israel*.
