The below text (hebrew and english) is what the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has asked us to share with the public:
מדינת ישראל שינתה את אופן הגשת הבקשות להיתר כניסה לישראל.
לצורך הגשת בקשה, יש למלא טופס מקוון ולצרף את כל המסמכים הנדרשים לצורך בחינתה.
לאור השינוי, בקשות שהתקבלו עד כה באמצעות הדוא”ל מוחזרות למבקשים ולא יטופלו.
במידה שבקשתכם רלוונטית, אנא לחצו כאן למילוי הטופס המקוון.
The State of Israel has changed the manner in which applications for entry into Israel are submitted.
In order to submit an application, one must fill out an online form and attach all the documents required for the application.
Due to the change, requests received so far via email are returned to applicants and will not be processed.
If your request is relevant, please Click Here to fill out the online form.
1) If you email send an email to [email protected] please make sure to include your phone number.
2) As rules and policies keep changing rapidly, there are no guarantees – but we will try our best. The faster you gather the needed documentation – the more likely the permit will be approved and issued in time.
3) A travel permit is not needed for any passengers that are citizens of Israel and that have a valid Israeli Passport
4) Once everything is confirmed and the travel permit is issued, we will share contact info with you for our colleagues on the ground in Israel who can assist you with any questions, concerns, or logistics from when you arrive in Israel until your departure from Israel.
5) Please note that you are obligated to remain in Israel for the duration of each individual travelers quarantine period.
However, if you are traveling for a funeral, you may enter and exit Israel within less than 24 hours. This exception applies to funerals only.
6) We must speak to the traveler directly before making any requests if more than one person is traveling; there needs to be only one family member we are communicating with on behalf of all travelers.
If you have any additional questions, please email [email protected]. If this is urgent and you need immediate assistance, please call David Kushner, Amudim’s Director of Government Relations, at 646-517-0222 ext 999, 24 hours a day.
Important Follow up steps for you:
Legal Disclaimer: This information was taken from the Ministry of Health updated guidelines, which were published in Hebrew, and Amudim does not assume any responsibility for any typographical error or any error in translation.
One can always call *5400, which is the Ministry of Health hotline, and request updated information. It is strongly suggested that you either speak Hebrew or have someone on the phone with you that speaks Hebrew, as not all the operators understand and speak English fluently.
There are 3 categories of persons as far as the Ministry of Health is concerned.
For anyone not in the above categories, the rule of 7 days with PCR proof still applies. That is as follows. Upon arrival in Israel, you must take a PCR test, and on day 7 you must take a PCR test. Once you have both test results, and they are negative for COVID, technically you are released, but it is strongly recommended that you call *5400, and request an official release request, as we have had many instances where people went to the airport, and the system did not show that they can leave Israel and were stuck for another day or two, getting the proof from the Ministry of Health.
Important Note: Having a Green Pass (Tav Yarok) does NOT exempt a person from the Quarantine (Bidud) requirements. The proper document for the release must come from the Ministry of Health, which as stated above, is done by calling *5400
Note of advice: It is always best if you have an Israeli cell phone #, which you should use when completing your “Preflight declaration form” (The one required to be completed within 24 hours of your flight to Israel – not to be confused with your entry permit application), and use that same # for the PCR and Serology testing. There are 2 reasons for this: One is that they generally send the release via SMS, in addition the system at *5400 reads the caller ID to identify the person.
Note: There are reports about a system where these documents can all be uploaded and stored prior to a flight, but that is not active yet. We will update this page when and if that happens.
