updated November 7, 2021

Important update - 11/29/2021

In response to the new Omicron variant, Israel’s Corona cabinet has decided to, once again, close its borders to all Non-Israeli Citizens. This new level of restrictions will INITIALLY be in effect for 14 days, beginning 11/29/2021.

Emergency situations such as funerals will still be able to receive an entry permit

Student visa holders who are fully vaccinated/recovered will be allowed enter Israel at this time, as long as they are not traveling  from Red countries and have adequate proof of vaccination/recovery

Entry permits issued prior to November 28 will not be honored.

At this time, an Exceptions Committee has not yet been established, though one is expected to be formed shortly. Likewise, a full list of which exceptional circumstances will qualify for special permission to enter Israel, will hopefully be finalized and announced shortly.

In a related development, all travelers entering Israel from abroad, even if they have a Green Pass, or are vaccinated/recovered, will now be required to quarantine for a minimum of three days upon entry.

Those with a Green Pass, or proof of vaccinated/recovered, will be allowed to exit quarantine after receiving a negative Covid result on the third day.
