Since March 1, tourists have been permitted to enter Israel, regardless of vaccination or recovery status.
Beginning today, March 9, Israel’s Health Ministry has added a new requirement for tourists entering the country. They must hold an insurance policy which explicitly covers Covid in Israel. This can be a letter from an insurance provider stating that one’s policy covers Covid, even when traveling abroad, or a travelers’ insurance policy which specifically states that it covers Covid. Those who hold Kupat Cholim coverage may bring their card with them.
Holders of A class visas are exempt from this requirement.
It is not yet clear if, how or at which point of travel this requirement will be enforced.
