Omicron alarm in Israel! Entry of foreigners to the country has been stopped

The Israeli cabinet, led by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, convened to discuss measures for the Omicron variant of the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19). The Israeli government has announced new travel measures. All foreigners were banned from entering Israel, except with exceptional committee approval.


Israelis vaccinated against Kovid-19 coming from abroad will have a PCR test, then quarantine at home, and will be able to exit quarantine if the test is negative on the third day. Those who have not been vaccinated will remain in quarantine for one week if they agree to be tested, and 14 days if they do not.

In the travel chart, it was stated that Israelis returning from “red list” countries will be quarantined in a hotel allocated by the state, they can go to home quarantine if their PCR tests are negative at the entrance, and they can get out of quarantine by having another test after seven days.

The Israeli government has warned Israelis going abroad that practices may change during their travels.

It was shared that the Ministry of Finance and Tourism will prepare ways to assist the relevant sectors.


It has been announced that the Israel Security Agency will activate the mobile phone tracking system to detect confirmed cases of the Omicron variant and prevent the spread of the virus.

The limit for supervised collective activity in closed areas was reduced from 100 to 50.

It was stated that there was no change in the religious holiday Hanukkah, which the Jews will start to celebrate on Sunday evening, but that the control will be kept strictly.
