Although the Government of Israel allows all foreign nationals to enter regardless of vaccination status, we are requiring vaccinations. *Vaccinated, for the purposes of Onward Israel programs, is defined as vaccinated with 2 Doses of a WHO recognized vaccine (or 1 Johnson & Johnson) and 14 days or more have passed since the date of the second dose, not including the day of vaccination; or: vaccinated with a booster dose and 14 days or more have passed since the date of the vaccination, not including the day of vaccination.
