All passengers arriving in Israel are required to quarantine for 14 days.
The Health Ministry has now established certain criteria for possible exemptions from quarantine for passengers who have recovered from Coronavirus.
After extensive work, the office of MK Yisrael Eichler has released detailed instructions for receiving an exemption. Please note that exemptions are not always granted, and are at the discretion of Health Ministry officials. Our thanks to MK Eichler’s dedicated staff for their unflagging efforts on this process.
The passenger must enter quarantine upon arriving in Israel, until he receives an exemption from the Ministry of Health.
He or she must present to Health officials at the airport:
- A medical summary detailing illness and recovery
- A copy of a PCR test proving the passenger was positive for Corona
- A copy of a PCR test proving the passenger tested negative for Corona
- A copy of an antibody test
The passenger will undergo a PCR test in the airport upon arrival. He or she will then enter quarantine until the results of the PCR test return. Results generally arrive after three days. If results are negative, quarantine can cease.
Results can be obtained thru your Kupat Cholim. If the passenger is not a Kupat Cholim member, results will be offered by the Health Ministry. Make sure to record your test number.
THE REGULATIONS FOR THIS PROCESS CHANGE FREQUENTLY. This information is accurate as of May 25.
