Updated Guidelines

updated October 5, 2021

This section is for those who have been vaccinated and/or recovered IN the State of Israel.

Tav Yarok Green Pass

  1. A person who has received two doses of an approved vaccine* and fewer than six months have passed since their most recent dose.
  2. A person who has received three doses of an approved vaccine* and fewer than six months have passed since their most recent dose.

A person who has recovered from COVID and has been vaccinated regardless of whether they were vaccinated prior to or after recovery is eligible for a “green pass” which is valid for six months but may be subject to revaluation at any point within that time period.

  1. A person who has recovered from COVID within the last six months with dated proof from a positive PCR test.

  2. One who has recovered from COVID, even if recovery was prior to six months, but has received at least one dose of an approved vaccine since recovery, based on the date on the document proving recovery. .

  3. A person with positive serology (antibody) results, proving that they had COVID prior to receiving any vaccines and has received at least one dose of an approved vaccine since the date on the serological results.

 

Please note that this is based on the age that vaccines are available for children, should the age be lowered, then this will change as well.

 

  1. A child who either has proof of COVID recovery via a positive PCR test or from a serology test can receive a “Green Pass” until the child reaches the age of 12 years and 3 months (Without being vaccinated). This is subject to change when vaccines are available for children.
  2. A child who has not recovered from COVID may receive a one-day Green Pass, with proof of a negative antigen test, performed by an approved vendor.
  3. A child may receive a 3-day green pass with a negative PCR test, for the purposes of attending school, the Green Pass will be valid for 7 days. 

Notes:

    1. The “Green Pass” is only valid in the State of Israel!

    2. The “Green Pass” is valid for 6 months from the date that the person received their last dose of an approved vaccine, or from the date of proof of COVID recovery, whichever of the two is more recent

    3. A daily “Green Pass” can be issued when someone takes a PCR test or an antigen test from an approved vendor.

    4. Rapid home antigen tests are NOT accepted by the Ministry of Health for the purpose of a Green Pass nor for the purpose of being released from quarantine. 

Tav Yarok Green Pass

      • If a person is not eligible for a Green Pass, due to the fact that they

        • – Were not vaccinated (which includes children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated)

        • – Do not have proof of COVID recovery

        • – More than 6 months have passed since their last dose of an approved vaccine.

        • – More than 6 months have passed since they have recovered from COVID, and they have not received any doses of any of the approved vaccines. 

 

Note: In all of the above cases, as well as all requests for a Green Pass in general, you must contact the Ministry of Health by calling *5400

Notes:

* In order to request a release from quarantine and to request a Green Pass, those who took the Pfizer vaccine, must have had their recent dose at least 1 week prior to the request, and within the previous 6 months. For those who were vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine, the most recent dose must have been administered at least 2 weeks prior and within the previous 6 months, to make the request.
(There is a lack of clarity as it relates to all other approved vaccines, but it seems to be that the most recent dose must have been administered 1 week prior to, and within the previous 6 months, to make the request, like the rules for the Pfizer vaccine).

** For additional details, call the Ministry of Health Hotline by dialing *5400.

The above is only for those who have been vaccinated and/or recovered IN the State of Israel. Guidelines are different for those persons outside the State of Israel and are listed below.In order to request a release from quarantine and to request a Green Pass,

  4. A Green Pass will not be issued until October 17, 2021, at the earliest for those who were vaccinated and/or recovered in all countries NOT part of the EU agreement.
