Leaving by Land & Sea

Travel from Israel to a country on the red list is forbidden for Israel citizens and for permanent residents of Israel.

Before leaving Israel

1. Check the policy of your destination

It is your responsibility to check what the border policy of your destination and requirements regarding entry of foreign nationals are, for example, whether you are required to fill out any forms, get tested, quarantine upon arrival, and so on.

When leaving for Jordan through one of the land crossings – Yitzhak Rabin, Allenby and the Jordan River – you are required to present a negative result on a PCR test that you took in the 72 hours before crossing.

2. Make sure that you are permitted to travel

  • If you have any doubts as to your status as a confirmed case, as a person required to be in isolation, or as a person who cannot leave Israel because of legal issues, check the Immigration and Population Authority's website.
  • Travelers discovered to be confirmed patients or persons required to stay in isolation at the time of their arrival in the crossing will not be allowed to cross the border and will be punished according to the law.

At the border crossing

  1. You must follow the safety rules in the public sphere: Wear a mask over your nose and mouth (required from anyone aged 7 years and older) and follow the distancing and personal hygiene practices.
  2. After crossing over to Jordan you will be required to take another PCR test. This test requires payment on the Jordanian side.
