Israel – renewed lockdown due to Covid-19

On 08.01.2021, Israel entered into its third and hardest lockdown yet. The new lockdown will continue for at least the next 2 weeks. Because of this, the entry ban of foreign nationals has also been extended.

However, foreign nationals who received an entry permit to Israel during the COVID-19 pandemic are exempt from this regulation. These foreign nationals must spend 10 days in quarantine and present 2 negative COVID-19 tests upon entry. Individuals who have been in South Africa in the past 14 days must spend 10 days in isolation at a government facility.

In addition, new applications for re-entry of foreign experts (currently holding valid B-1 working visas), as well as their dependents, will not be processed in the next two weeks. Nevertheless, the Ministry may allow entry for a few foreign experts that are deemed by the Ministry to be essential to the Israeli market such as those working in power plants, oil refinery operations, etc.

During the lockdown, government services will be limited to urgent cases only and some ministry offices will be closed.
