The coronavirus news in Israel
Wearing a face mask is mandatory in indoor public areas in Israel. Foreign nationals must have an entry permit to Israel. Air travel to and from Israel is subject to entry and outbound clearances. All passengers arriving in Israel must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result to airline staff. Passengers with an Israeli COVID certificate are required to enter isolation until they receive COVID-19 negative test results to a test that they must take on arrival in Israel, or isolate for 24 hours (whichever is earlier). Travellers who were vaccinated or recovered outside of Israel must enter isolation, but they can apply for an exemption by taking a serological test in an accredited Israeli laboratory. Persons who are not vaccinated are required to quarantine for 14 days. There is an option to shorten the isolation period, if two PCR test results are negative: the first test, which is mandatory for all travelers, must be taken when you arrive in Israel; the second test is taken on the seventh day of isolation. All passengers who have visited destinations included by Israel in the list of countries with the highest COVID-19 risk are required to enter isolation 7-14 days. Full guidance can be found from the Israeli Ministry of Health website. Rules and regulations might change at short notice.
