COVID-19 in Israel

Israel has removed the entry restrictions and special regulations relating to COVID-19. However, there are a few precautions you should be aware of if you plan to visit Israel:

  • Tourists are no longer required to have a health insurance policy with coverage for the treatment of Covid19 virus.
  • Today there is no obligation to take a COVID test. At the same time, there are cases in which it is recommended to test – see When Should I Take a COVID-19 Test.
  • As of today, isolation is no longer required for those who are a confirmed COVID-19 case. At the same time, it should be remembered that this is a contagious disease. Act responsibly! Wear a mask when leaving the hotel room or home. See the Ministry of Health “Isolation” advisory.
  • Consult with your airline regarding travel restrictions.
