COVID-19 Travel to Israel Information and Updates

Covid-19 Travel to Israel

Stay Tuned, Stay Safe, Israel 2020

Post COVID-19 Travel to Israel has created many questions for travelers and it has been difficult to find a clear and easily available source of reliable information concerning travel to Israel for non-residents or tourists, to some degree, it is still so.

Beginning in March 2020, the State of Israel shut down all tourism activities in Israel, which led to the unfortunate cancellation and postponement of many tours and created uncertain circumstances for future tourists planning to come to the Holy Land. Post Covid-19 travel to Israel we hope till resume in September 2020. We are hoping to begin to see our Christian, Messianic and Catholic tour groups begin returning to although it is an ever-changing and situation.  

For those of you who have travel plans to Israel or have an upcoming tour group to Israel in the coming months, Immanuel Tours have put together a summary of most up-to-date information on traveling to the Holy Land and what to expect when you get to Israel. We encourage you to bookmark this page and visit it often for the most up-to-date information regarding post Covid-19 travel to Israel.

On September 13, the Israeli government chose to lockdown the country again starting 9am, Sept 18th (prior to the start of Rosh Hashanah) until October 9th (the end of the High Holy Days) due to rising coronavirus infections. No one will be able to leave outside of 500m of their homes, except for very limited circumstances. Tourism, restaurants, and recreation activities will cease entirely and restrictions on incoming visitors will continue. We ask that you pray for Israel during this very difficult time.
