Update, 3/31: Chaim V’Chessed reports that returning families with kids who were not vaccinated or recovered will be allowed into Israel.
Israel’s latest NOTAM bans foreign nationals without special permission from flying to Israel through at least April 8th. Do you think that the country will begin opening to foreign nationals after that?
Originally posted on 3/16:
Israel will reportedly allow returning students back into the country after Pesach.
They will need a valid student visa and to have been vaccinated for COVID-19 in Israel, though the exact documentation requirements aren’t finalized.
Students with children can only leave and return to Israel if the entire family has either been vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19.
Of course anything can change, but Israel’s COVID numbers continue to improve and hopefully that trend will continue.
It’s worth noting that Israel may still limit inbound flights, which may cause flight cancellations.
Israel’s current restriction on other foreign nationals expires in 4 days. It remains to be seen what the new rules will be.
Are you a student in Israel this year? Will you leave for Pesach?
