NOTE: NO ONE ABOVE THE AGE OF 12, EVEN WITH A VALID STUDENT VISA, WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER ISRAEL IF THEY ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED.

Children under 12 months of age can accompany their parents without a permit

This update is as of November 17, 2021 and is subject to change at the discretion of the Israeli Government. This applies to those who have left Israel after Nov 1, 2021 as well. We express tremendous thanks to the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Health, for granting approval for children of student visa holders, stuck abroad, to enter Israel.

Unvaccinated children under 12, whose parents, and the child or children have VALID STUDENT VISAS, who need to re-enter Israel, can apply for an entry permit, as long as they meet the following requirements, and prepare the following documentation:

Eligibility Criteria:

  1. The parents and the children MUST have valid student visas IN THEIR PASSPORTS.
  2. The parents and any children 12 and older, MUST be fully vaccinated or recovered (recovered must be IN Israel).
  3. Their center of life must be Israel. (They must have lived in Israel for the past year).

Required Documentation:

  1. Copies of both parents’ passports and valid student visas.
  2. Copy of the child’s passport and valid student visa.
  3. Copy of the parents’ marriage license.
  4. Copy of the child’s birth certificate.
  5. Copy of the child’s health insurance in Israel.

If you meet the above criteria, you can apply online, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website. Select “Other” when it asks for the reason, and enter in the box that this is for a child of parents who have valid visas. You must also select the option to attach documents. Keep in mind that the system only allows for 5 attachments, so you will need to combine some of the documents, so they can all be uploaded.

The application only needs to be submitted for the child or children, and not for the parent. It is one application per passenger.
