COVID-19: Entry ban extended 

21 Jul 20

ISRAEL

IMPACT – HIGH

The ban on non-Israeli citizens entering Israel has been extended again.

Key Points:   

  • Most foreign nationals will be barred from entering Israel until at least Sept. 1.
  • Foreign nationals who are permitted to enter will be subject to restrictions and will not be allowed to board flights to Israel without pre-entry approval issued by the Ministry of Interior.
  • Anyone entering Israel must sign a promise to remain in home isolation for 14 days.
  • All foreign nationals must present health insurance that specifically covers COVID-19 upon entry.
  • Any foreign national leaving Israel before the end of the 14-day isolation period must have special permission. Those who leave without such permission may be barred from future entry.

Analysis & Comments: Israel continues to take aggressive steps to limit the spread of COVID-19. While entry rules have eased somewhat, foreign travelers must be sure to follow applicable entry and exit procedures in order to avoid adverse immigration consequences.
