Key Points

  • Restricted entrance for foreign nationals entering Israel
  • Updated entrance requirements for Israel citizens


The government of Israel will extend the restrictions for travelers entering Israel. Arrivals of all foreign nationals to Israel will not be permitted to enter the country beginning December 12, 2021, unless a foreign national has an exemption approval issued by the Exceptions Committee. Israeli citizens who are either fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 recently will be permitted to enter Israel. However, these individuals will be required to:

  • Take a PCR test upon arrival in Israel
  • Undergo a home isolation period
  • Take a second PCR test on the third day after arrival. If the test result is negative, the individual can end the home isolation period. If the test result is positive or a test is not taken on the third day of home isolation, the individual must complete the entire 14-day home isolation

Unvaccinated Israel citizens will be required to adhere to the aforementioned requirements, including taking a PCR test upon arrival in Israel. However, the second PCR test will be taken on day seven instead of day three. If a positive test is received or not taken on the seventh day of home isolation, the individual must complete the entire 14-day home isolation. For additional entrance information, click here.
