On 01.11.2021, the Israeli Ministry of Health passed a new COVID-19 regulation that allows fully vaccinated or recovered tourists to enter Israel.
This repealed the previous regulation, which only allowed business travellers to obtain a residence permit.
Nevertheless, entry to Israel for fully vaccinated persons is still subject to certain conditions under the new regulation:
- The traveller must not have stayed in an international high-risk area for 14 days before travelling to Israel. A detailed overview can be found at the following link:
- The traveller has been vaccinated with a WHO-certified vaccine.
- There are no other reasons for refusing entry to Israel.
- Entry is via Ben-Gurion International Airport.
In addition, travellers are required to present a negative PCR test result and confirmation on the traveller registration form 72 hours before travelling to Israel.
Upon arrival at Ben-Gurion International Airport, travellers must undergo another PCR test and remain in isolation until the negative test result is received or 24 hours have passed since the test.
Travellers who do not comply with the applicable regulations upon entering the transport terminal can expect to be turned back to their point of departure.
Finally, travellers who present a forged document or refuse to comply with the isolation rule after receiving a positive test result face an entry ban of 5 years.
