It should be noted that vaccinated and recovering people who have been in one of the above countries for less than 12 hours as part of a flight connection without leaving the airport will not be required to enter isolation.
All travelers entering the country (citizens and foreigners, including recovering and vaccinated) from any destination where they spent more than 72 hours, must present in the country of origin a negative PCR test performed during the 72 hours before the time of entry into Israel.
In addition, all those entering the country (civilians and foreigners, including recovering and vaccinated) must present a PCR test when entering Israel.
The criteria for the Exceptions Committee, to obtain an exit permit to the above countries, are, among others:
– Departing for a humanitarian or essential need.
– Athletes (with the approval of the Director-General of the Ministry of Culture and Sports).
