As detailed extensively by Chaim V’Chessed, at the current time, only fully vaccinated tourists are permitted to enter Israel. This has created hardship for those with unvaccinated children seeking to visit Israel.
Now, Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked has signaled that a change will, hopefully, be taking place in the near future. Shaked has apprised Knesset Members Yaakov Asher and Yitzchak Pindrus of Degel Hatorah that in the near future unvaccinated children up to age 12 will be permitted to enter Israel together with their fully vaccinated parents.
At this time, no official ruling has been issued and exact details of this rule have not yet been decided. It is still unknown when it will go into effect. Furthermore, it is still unclear how much, if any, quarantine will be required of such unvaccinated children upon arrival in Israel.
