Compulsory PCR test when entering Israel is canceled from May 21.


Mandatory PCR testing for coronavirus is canceled for all those entering Israel from May 21. This is stated in the message of the Israeli Ministry of Health, circulated on Monday.

Israelis and foreigners will be canceled,” the ministry said. Earlier it was reported that PCR testing when entering Israel will be canceled from May 20.

In addition, the Ministry of Health indicated that the obligation previously imposed on foreigners to undergo a PCR test or an antigen test before boarding a flight, ground passage or sea voyage to Israel. The obligation to be screened before a cruise departing from Israel will also be lifted.

Passengers are still required to complete an entry declaration within 48 hours prior to boarding a flight or vessel, the ministry added.

In Israel, since April 23, due to the decrease in the incidence of covid, the requirement to wear masks in the premises has been abolished. A similar open space requirement was lifted in mid-April 2021. PCR testing upon entry into the country, however, has so far remained mandatory for everyone.
