Jerusalem: Foreign nationals flying to Israel will no longer be required to take a coronavirus test before boarding, the Israeli Ministry of Health said.

Earlier this month, the ministry allowed foreigners to choose between PCR and antigen tests before boarding, instead of mandatory PCR only.

The easing will take effect on Saturday. All passengers flying to Israel will still be required to fill out a health declaration up to 48 hours before boarding, media reports said.

In early January, Israel allowed the entry of Covid vaccinated and recovered passengers, and then in early March, of all passengers, including the unvaccinated.
