The Israeli government has announced a three-week nationwide lockdown because of an increase in the COVID-19 infection rate. The quarantine could be extended after Oct. 9 if infections do not fall.
This is Israel’s second quarantine. The first one started in March and was lifted in early May.
During the lockdown, the Ministry of Interior says all visa applications will either be on hold or slowly processed. Closures for the upcoming holidays of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot could also cause delays. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and VISA LOUNGE Global Immigration will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
