Following the current surge of COVID-19, guidance for international travelers changes with global and domestic infection rates

Leaving Israel

  1. You are not required to fill out an exit statement.

  2. Find out what the policy and restrictions of your destination are, as well as those of your airline or cruise company:
    It is your responsibility to check the country's foreign national entry policies and requirements before leaving Israel:

     Are COVID-19 tests required before arrival
     Complete required forms
    Are there any restrictions on vaccination or recovery validity
    Isolation requirements
     Proof of vaccination or recovery (COVID-19 certificate)
    Countries that can verify Israeli COVID-19 certificates >
    Additionally, you should check directly with your airline or cruise line companies regarding their policies.

  3. COVID-19 testing before leaving Israel:
    If, according to the policy of the destination country, you must take a COVID-19 test before your arrival at the destination, you can make an appointment in one of the hospitals providing private COVID-19 testing, or in any other approved facility that provides testing for leaving the country. Note that the result document is in English, and that your full name, as printed on the passport, and passport number appear in English.

  4. If you were confirmed with COVID-19 and have not yet recovered in compliance with Israel's mandatory protocol – do not board the flight or the cruise. If you have recently recovered, check the destination country's policy regarding its recovery procedure to make sure you are allowed to enter that country.

  5. Make sure that you are allowed to leave Israel:
    • If you have any doubts concerning your recognition as a confirmed case, going into isolation, or if you are not allowed to leave Israel, check the website of the Immigration and Population Authority.
    • Confirmed COVID-19 cases or individuals who are required to stay in isolation at the time of arrival at the airport, the sea or land border crossing - will not be allowed to leave Israel and will be subject to penalty according to law.
