Requirements for Entry into Israel from Malta


Latest Update: Foreigners are currently not permitted to travel to Israel as a 14-day travel ban was brought into effect on Sunday 28th November. Vaccinated Israeli citizens entering the country will be required to observe a three-day mandatory quarantine period while Israeli nationals who have not been vaccinated will be required to observe a seven-day quarantine period.

Non-Israeli citizens may apply for a special entry permit from the Exceptions Committee to enter the country.
