Rules for passengers arriving in Israel have literally been changing daily. Today, authorities have decided to send ALL FOREIGNERS arriving in Israel from Red countries to quarantine hotels, irrespective of vaccination status. Chaim V’Chessed has been contacted by many distraught passengers, including families with small children who are being compelled to hotel quarantine. Supposedly, passengers will be released after receiving negative Covid results.
This new ruling even includes Green Pass holders. We have heard from passengers who have been vaccinated three times in Israel, who are also being sent to hotels.
The random and unpredictable behavior of Border Control is more than troubling. Numerous travelers boarded flights to Israel only after authorities ceased the hotel policy, only to discover that the policy changed, yet again, while they were in midair.
Chaim V’Chessed is advocating for an end to this incessant harassment. However, at the present time we have not been able to change this policy. We are hopeful that at least those who are residents of Israel will be permitted quarantine at home.
