Israel to end test on arrival

From May 20, Israel will abolish the requirement to test on arrival. This was confirmed by the Israeli Ministry of Health yesterday.

Until now, two PCR tests were mandatory for travel to Israel: on departure from the Netherlands and on arrival. In March, Israel had already reduced the waiting time for the second PCR test from 24 hours to 4 hours, but from May 20, the arrival PCR test will be abolished. However, a test must still be done upon departure from the Netherlands, but an antigen test is also sufficient from 10 May. The antigen test must then be done within 24 hours before departure to Israel.
