Coronavirus: Travelers to pay to get tested for flying
As first tourists land in Israel, rapid serological tests which are supposed to be offered at Ben-Gurion Airport are yet to be provided.
Travelers who wish to leave or enter Israel will now have to pay for their coronavirus PCR test, the Health Ministry announced
In order to travel to Israel, authorities required that all passengers – including those who are vaccinated or recovered – present a negative test before boarding, and take another one upon arrival.
Regarding outbound passengers, those vaccinated and recovered are not required by Israel to undergo a test before leaving, but often, airlines or regulations at travelers’ destination do demand that a negative test is shown, so they have no choice and must test if they want to fly.
At the moment, Check2Fly offers the tests for some NIS135 to receive results within four hours and NIS 45 for results within 14 hours.
From June 1st, everyone who arrives in Israel will have to pay for their own test, NIS 80 when booked in advance and NIS 100 without booking.
From June 10 the testing complex at Ben-Gurion Airport will be operated by the Femi Premium group and those who do not comply will face a NIS 3,500 fine.
