The groups that are banned from the country are not pleased about it.
Numerous organizations on the list are affiliated with the "boycott, divestment and sanctions" movement, or BDS, which discourages the purchase of Israeli goods and pressures global companies and celebrities to avoid doing business with or in Israel.
But it is not only Palestinians who are protesting; among the Israelis who support BDS are musicians Aviad Albert and Yoav Beirach.
The list, published by the Strategic Affairs Ministry, includes 20 BDS-linked organizations, majority from Europe and the US. His strategic affairs ministry has a budget of around $36 million to make counter-plan to tackle the BDS movement.
Human rights groups and activists consider such attempts by Israel as an attack on free speech and curbing any criticism of its apartheid policy towards Palestinians.
Free speech advocates slammed the law as a form of "thought control", and note that Israel already controls who enters the Palestinian territories, with the exception of one border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip.
Israel instituted a travel ban on 20 worldwide organizations promoting a campaign to boycott the Middle Eastern country over its policies toward Palestine.
Arye Dery, heading the Interior Ministry who will be responsible for implementing the list, said: "These people are trying to exploit the law and our hospitality to act against Israel and to defame the country. But I am also heartened by this indicator of the BDS movement's growing strength, and hope that it will bring the day closer when just as I go to visit my friends and family in Israel, so will Palestinian friends and colleagues be able to return home", Vilkomerson said in the statement.
"The boycott organizations need to know that the State of Israel will take actions to stop them and prevent their representatives from entering the country to harm its citizens", said Gilad Erdan, minister of public security and strategic affairs, in a statement.
Among the banned groups are the Paris-based Association France Palestine Solidarite, British charity War on Want and the American Friends Service Committee - a Nobel Peace Prize-winning US Quaker organisation.
According to Diker, "Over the last two years the government has done a lot of homework to determine who are the worst violators in the BDS campaign that completely reject Israel's very right to exist as a Jewish State".
They argued that the people had "a right to decide not to profit from human rights abuses" and the High Court noted that government acted illegally by seeking to restrict "ethical" boycotts of Israel. A message from Vaknin-Gil confirmed, "Dan Diker and the JCPA provided incredible research on the BDS, anti-normalization and delegitimization phenomena that really needed to be done to ensure that this global campaign can be contained". "Israel sees this as a deterrent, but I think that people will be even more dedicated to the cause".
