Covid Testing Not Required in Israel After May 20

For the first time since the pandemic began, Israel recently announced that they are doing away with mandatory Covid testing upon arrival at Ben Gurion airport.

This new development, set to go into effect on May 20th also ends the current 24-hour quarantine (or a negative test) required for new arrivals. Moreover, non-citizen travelers to Israel can now present a negative antigen test before departure rather than a PCR (citizens will still not need a test at all).

This exciting new policy does not change testing requirements for outbound flights to the destination country.
