Israel’s Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and Health Minister Yuli Edelstein announced today that students from overseas will be allowed to enter Israel for the coming school year despite the current ban on non-Israeli citizens.
The decision was made jointly by the Immigration Authority, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It was decided that yeshiva students from abroad will have to undergo group isolation of up to six students together, and subject to compliance with the isolation requirements.
The decision further stipulates that full responsibility for maintaining the guidelines of isolation rests with the educational institution. Exact regulations are still being determined and we will be sent to all relevant parties as soon as they are finalized.
The approval applies to all yeshivah, seminary, Ulpana, MASA, and high school students. All educational institutions will be required to adhere to all Health Ministry regulations.
For specific details and guidelines, students should contact their yeshiva or seminary.
