Israel eases Covid test requirements

Saturday, Nov 26, 2022 0

Israel has relaxed health requirements for both returning citizens and foreign tourists.

From today, passengers arriving in Israel can present a negative antigen test from the previous 24 hours, instead of the requirement of a negative PCR test within 72 hours.

Passengers landing at Ben Gurion airport and Israel’s other border entry points will still be required to undergo a PCR test at the airport and remain in isolation until the results are received, usually within 24 hours).

Israel has relaxed entry requirements, even though Covid infections are on the rise in Europe.

Sharon Bershadsky, Director of the UK & Ireland Tourist Office said: "The easing of the process is an encouraging step from the cabinet to help ease the international travel process, which has been stringent for the health and safety of all and continues to be the number one priority."

By introducing antigen tests, we are hopeful these will ease the way for everyone travelling to Israel."
