The Civil Aviation Authority announced on Monday that the current entry restrictions for foreigners into Israel will continue until at least September 1.

Currently, only citizens or residents of Israel are allowed to enter the country due to coronavirus restrictions, but some exceptions are available: Family members of those getting married may enter; grandparents may enter for the birth of a grandchild; grandparents may enter for the bar/bas mitzvah of a grandchild.

All travelers to Israel need to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.

For the time being, Israel’s three carriers – El Al, Arkia Airlines and Israir Airlines – have announced no plans to restart scheduled flights.
