As we published, we are very happy that the entry of volunteers into Israel has been approved.
Israel is still in the process of getting out of the pandemic and therefore there are measures of precaution that are being taken against COVID 19 to those entering the country.
Every day there are new updates and new regulations - we make efforts to inform our candidates of any new regulations.

Starting Friday, September 3 - anyone entering Israel from an orange country and is vaccinated may come out of quarantine after 24 hours or a negative PCR test - whichever comes first ... 
Of course there is the exception - A person who has received a corona vaccine not in the State of Israel can leave isolation only after a serological test and a negative PCR test. The good news - one can now do both tests at the airport at a discounted price and pay in advance at the following link: https://testngo.femi.com/en/sign-in

inbound statement form (24 hours before boarding the plane) a link will be sent to your email for payment.

These are the details as they appear on the website of the Ministry of Health -

In addition to the usual conditions there is a new mandatory condition -
a "vaccination obligation". Those who have been vaccinated for Covid-19 or will prove it with a medical document  - Certificate of recovery from Covid-19.
The certificate is valid only for six months so if you fall into this category and want to come to Israel to volunteer at a Kibbutz - we are waiting for you, at the regular place
https://kibbutzvolunteers.org.il/

Please be advised that due to the Covid-19 special regulations all arrivals in Israel have to be picked up from the airport directly into a 10-day quarantine period.
For this reason there are now additional costs added to the regular program fees:
Transportation from the Airport to the Kibbutz 300 NIS + 50 NIS a day x 10 days for Quarantine (including accommodation, food, laundry and WIFI) = total of 800 NIS.
(All the costs above are subsidized by the Kibbutzim and the program)

Upon arrival in Israel, all inbound passengers must have a COVID-19 PCR test done - As of 1/6/2021 there will be a charge for the sest - once you fill the
inbound statement form (24 hours before boarding the plane) a link will be sent to your email for payment.
