    On Friday, February 5, the Israeli Cabinet voted to extend the travel ban through February 20. In conjunction with this, the Cabinet announced new rules and regulations for entry and exit from Israel. The new rules are quite confusing; in this post, Chaim V’Chessed clarifies the major points of the new rules.

    Firstly, it is important to note that numerous flights are still scheduled for the next two weeks to and from the United States. Officials in the airline industry have told us that despite the fact that these flights still appear as active, they will be cancelled. At the same time, emergency flights will begin operating between Israel and the US in the coming days. Chaim V’Chessed will announce when these flights are scheduled, and they will be available for purchase online or via travel agents. The daily flights to/from Frankfurt continue to operate.

    Outgoing Travel from Israel

    1) Foreign citizens who are not Israeli citizens or Toshavei Keva are permitted to leave Israel.
    2) Israeli citizens: If traveling for a funeral, medical procedure, a legal proceeding or to return to one’s home, one must fill out this affidavit. If traveling for any other reason, one must obtain special permission, via this application.
    3) Dual citizens: Israeli citizens who also hold foreign passports, should be subject to the same rules as Israeli. However, many have simply presented their foreign passports and been permitted to leave.

    Incoming Travel to Israel 

    1) All incoming passengers to Israel must receive permission to enter from the Vaadat Charigim, by clicking here.
    2) It had been widely publicized that Israeli citizens who left Israel before January 25 may reenter the country without a permit. According to our sources, this is inaccurate. Rather, the rules state that Israeli citizens who left Israel at any time, in a permissible fashion, will be granted permission to return. However, they must receive permission to enter from the Vaadat Charigim.
    3) Non-Israeli citizens/toshavei keva will be able to receive permission based on humanitarian reasons. We are in dialogue with government officials to ascertain which circumstances will qualify as humanitarian reasons.
    4) Non-Israelis whose spouses or children are Israeli will be able to receive permission to enter Israel. Details about this clause are still sketchy.
    5) All incoming passengers are required to quarantine for 10 to 14 days in government quarantine hotels. People who have been vaccinated or have recovered from Corona IN ISRAEL are exempt from this requirement.
    6) All incoming travelers to Israel must present a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of their flight, unless they are documented as vaccinated/recovered in Israel. Additionally, this health declaration is required of all passengers entering Israel.

    This is an extremely dynamic situation. Rules and details can – and will – change rapidly.
