Update: This is now confirmed and entry will begin tomorrow for anyone who meets the requirements!
US Citizens will need to be fully vaccinated and have had their last shot within 180 days of departing Israel.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced today that Israel plans to reopen for Tourists on November 1st.
Such plans have been cancelled in the past and it is still pending the approval of the coronavirus cabinet. But this has already passed many hurdles to being approved.
There will be many restrictions still in place though, some of those include:
- Must have at least 2 shots for Pfizer, Moderna and 1 shot for J&J vaccines.
- You must receive your last vaccine shot within 180 days of entry.
- At least 14 days must have passed since your most recent vaccine shot.
- A positive PCR test within the past 180 days is also acceptable with digital proof (this does not exist in the US). 11 days must have passed since the positive test as well.
We will still have to wait to see what the exact rules will be, such as what the rules will be for kids, etc.
Do you think Israel will actually open this time?
Will you plan a booster shot in anticipation of a trip to Israel to be within 180 days of your last shot?
