The government is considering approving as part of the emerging tourism outline that will probably include a permit to allow the entry of unvaccinated tourists according to the Israeli definition, as early as November 9.

In recent weeks, there have been discussions between the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Tourism regarding tourists who have been vaccinated with only two vaccines, and that six months have passed since the date of their second vaccination.

According to the Ministry of Health, these vaccines are not protected and cannot enter the country, but discussions are currently underway that "they have some protection and they are not considered unprotected."



The tourism outline, which will take effect on November 1, allows entry into Israel without the obligation to perform a serological test for individuals or groups who are considered vaccinated according to the Israeli definition and whose method of vaccination has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This is subject to performing a PCR test before take-off and performing another test upon landing at Ben Gurion Airport.

According to the outline, groups will be able to enter the country up to a limit of 2,000 people per day, and individuals will be able to enter without restriction.

In the new outline proposed, tourists arriving in groups will be able to enter even if they are present vaccinated with two doses, even though half a year has already passed since the second vaccine.



The Ministry of Health claimed that without a third vaccine the protection decreases significantly, and the green label is given only to those who have been vaccinated with a booster, but for tourists the approach is different.

As far as the Ministry of Health is concerned, they are not considered unvaccinated and do not pose a danger, but they will be required to remain in the group's capsule and will not be allowed to enter places that require a green label.

Tourists allowed to enter Israel under the current outline

  • Strangers who were vaccinated with a Pfizer booster dose, and passed 7 days or more from the vaccine on the day they entered Israel.

  • Foreigners vaccinated with a booster dose of Moderna, Synovak, Astraznica, Jensen, and 14 days or more passed from the vaccine on the day they entered Israel.

  • Recovered foreigners who present a reference to a positive result in a NAAT test (molecular test such as PCR) and have passed 11 days or more from the test on the day they enter Israel.

  • Foreigners who have recovered and received at least one dose of the vaccines approved by the World Health Organization.

  • Foreigners who were vaccinated with two Pfizer vaccines, and 7 days or more passed from the second vaccine on the day they entered Israel, but not more than 180 days when they left Israel.

  • Foreigners who were vaccinated with two vaccines of Moderna, Astraznica, Synovak and Sinopharm, and passed 14 days or more from the second vaccine on the day they entered Israel (but not more than 180 days when they left Israel).

  • Foreigners who were vaccinated with one Jensen vaccine and passed 14 days or more of the vaccine on the day they entered Israel (but not more than 180 days when they left Israel).

In addition to vaccinated and recovering tourists, the entry of vaccinated with a second vaccine will be approved.

Groups of tourists will be allowed to enter the country, provided they have not been in a red country or in a country for which there is a severe travel warning in the 14 days prior to their entry into Israel.

In addition, group members will have to undergo a daily antigen test or PCR test, once every 72 hours for 14 days from entering Israel.



Last week, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz and Tourism Minister Yoel Rezbozov approved the tourism and entry policy for Israel, which will be updated in accordance with developments and the discovery of new variants.

According to the outline, the conditions that will apply to all foreigners, whether individuals or groups, stipulate that a serological examination will not be necessary as a condition of entry into Israel.

It was also decided that there would be an obligation to isolate until a negative result is obtained in a PCR test performed at Ben Gurion Airport, and that those foreigners will receive a green card for the duration of your stay in Israel.
