The government cabinet votes to extend electronic tracking of travelers who arrive in the country by an additional month, until at least February 9.

The government also votes to extend the requirement to show a negative test before boarding a plane to Israel for an additional month, and institutes a requirement for air travel personnel who enter Israel to undergo weekly tests.

Currently, anyone who enters Israel must present a negative PCR before boarding a flight, and take an additional test upon landing. Those who are fully vaccinated with a booster are released from quarantine if the test after landing is negative, but those who are not must spend a week in quarantine and take another test a week after arriving (or spend 14 days in quarantine without an additional test).
