Health Insurance Now Required of Tourists Visiting Israel
Since March 1, tourists have been permitted to enter Israel, regardless of vaccination or recovery status.
Beginning today, March 9, Israel’s Health Ministry has added a new requirement for tourists entering the country. They must hold an insurance policy which explicitly covers Covid in Israel. This can be a letter from an insurance provider stating that one’s policy covers Covid, even when traveling abroad, or a travelers’ insurance policy which specifically states that it covers Covid. Those who hold Kupat Cholim coverage may bring their card with them.
Holders of A class visas are exempt from this requirement.
It is not yet clear if, how or at which point of travel this requirement will be enforced.
