Israel is the world leader in vaccinating its population against COVID-19.
With such staggeringly high numbers of folk protected by the vaccine, the possibility for travel among those who have had both doses is looking super positive. We have gone ahead and summarised all you need to know about traveling from Israel from the Government so you have it in one easy, digestible spot.
All outbound passengers who stay in Israel more than 72 hours must present airline staff with a negative COVID-19 PCR test results prior to departure. This does not apply to people with Israeli vaccination or recovered certificates.
All travelers must complete and submit an online outbound passenger statement form within 24 hours of boarding your flight. If you don’t meet the health requirements, you won’t be permitted to board your flight.
You’ll need to:
Who needs to apply:
Depending on the information you provide and health declarations, you'll either be cleared or refused to board your flight. You'll get a notification immediately after submitting the form. Contact airline staff if boarding is denied.
You can schedule an appointment to get tested for international travel at your own expense with one of the medical centers that offer coronavirus testing.
Passengers who are not sure if they are required to go into isolation or passengers who are required to go into isolation and were refused boarding are advised to check their travel compliance with the Population and Immigration Authority. If a passenger is a confirmed case or is required to go into isolation, boarding will be denied under penalty of law.
Upon arrival, passengers will have to prove they can fully comply with all requirements to be allowed to go into isolation at home or another available accommodation. If it is not possible to comply with all isolation requirements, passengers will have to provide the address of the hotel where they will isolate.
The mandatory isolation duration is 14 days; it can be shortened to 10 days if two test results taken in the time intervals set in the protocol are negative.
You are exempt from isolation if you have recovered from COVID-19 in Israel and were registered in the Israeli Ministry of Health recovered patients database, or if you were vaccinated with two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and 7 days have passed since the second dose, and if you are registered in Israeli Ministry of Health vaccinated people database.
It is advised that recovered patients or vaccinated individuals ask their HMO for a recovery certificate or apply to the Ministry of Health for a vaccination certificate.
If you get vaccinated with two doses in Israel, but you exit Israel before 7 full days pass after the second dose, you will have to go into Isolation when you return to Israel, but only if less than 21 days passed after receiving the second dose.
Passengers who recovered or received the vaccine abroad must go into isolation upon arrival; but they can apply for an exemption if:
You must wait at least 10 days between testing positive for coronavirus and taking the serological test. You must wait for a text message (SMS) and/or e-mail confirming that you are exempt of isolation.
