Israeli Citizen travelling to Israel
« on: November 13, 2020, 02:19:24 PM »
Hi - trying to figure these answers for my Mother who is an Israeli Citizen and needs to travel back to see her Mother.

1) Do you need to present a COVID negative test upon arrival?   Doesn't look like it
2) I know she has to quarantine for 14 days (and she has an apartment), but is she able to leave the country and come back home BEFORE the 14 days?
3) I now see there is a 12 day isolation option...does that work for travel?
4) Anybody know of any good insurance plans she can get for her 2 week stay?

Thanks.

I believe it does
From Chaim Vchesed:
Quarantine may be shortened to 12 days, according to the following rules.

The individual must take a PCR test for Covid as soon as he or she begins quarantine. Persons in quarantine are only permitted to test for Corona at special Drive-in testing centers. A list of these locations can be found here.
They must then undergo a second PCR test on the tenth day of quarantine.
In the event that both tests are negative, notification that the person may exit quarantine after 12 days will be sent by SMS or telephone call.
If one does not receive notification from the Health Ministry, they are required to complete the full 14 day quarantine.

If she had a positive PCR test then she can get released from quarantine with a negative test in Israel.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
