Israel Extends Incoming Travel Rules Through March 7

(JNS) The coronavirus cabinet voted to extend Israel’s travel restrictions through March 7, including only allowing fully vaccinated visitors into the country and requiring them to take a coronavirus test before takeoff and upon landing.

However, the cabinet did decide to reduce restrictions on outbound travelers beginning February 8. The obligation to take a coronavirus test before leaving Israel has been lifted for both passengers and crew.

Moreover, a passenger with symptoms of COVID-19 in the 14 days before takeoff will be able to board aircraft if the individual performs an antigen test and gets a negative result. Currently, a PCR test is required.

On Wednesday, February 2, Rabbi Nechemya Malinowitz of Eretz Hakodesh announced that any traveler holding a student visa, meaning all yeshiva and seminary students, can enter the country regardless of COVID vaccination or infection status, in a further loosening of restrictions.
