Government officials are weighing ending the requirement for incoming travelers to Israel to show a negative COVID test before boarding a flight to the country, according to a Channel 12 news report.
Currently, anyone traveling to Israel must show a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours or a negative antigen taken 24 hours before boarding the flight.
According to the report, the test that is required of all travelers upon landing at Ben Gurion International Airport would remain in place.
El Al reportedly told health officials that many countries around the world do not require their own citizens to show a pre-travel negative test. It was not immediately clear from the report if such a move would apply to citizens and non-citizens alike.
