Starting on May 20, travelers entering Israel will no longer be required to take a COVID-19 test at Ben-Gurion airport, Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz announces.

“We will maintain the testing system at Ben Gurion Airport and throughout the country, and we will be able to quickly reactivate it as necessary,” Horowitz says, citing the consistent drop in cases as the reason behind the move.
