Link to form that needs to be filled out within 48 hours of flight to Israel

Accordingly, the FINAL criteria For entering Israel are as follows - you must meet ONE of these conditions in order to enter Israel:

1. Vaccinated within 180 days of the trip with either a second vaccine or a booster and it must be at least 14 days after the shot.

2. Recovered within 180 days of the trip with DIGITAL proof of a positive PCR result and more than 11 days have passed since the positive result. This type of proof only exists in the EU. The UK will likely have it as well.

3. Recovered anytime – even more than 180 days before the trip - with DIGITAL proof of positive PCR result AND vaccinated with at least one dose within 180 days of the trip. Again at the moment the digital proof only exists in the EU and possibly the UK shortly.

Your vaccination or recovery CANNOT expire while in Israel, which means you may not be in Israel more than 180 days after your vaccine or recovery have expired.

CONSEQUENCES FOR VIOLATING THE TERMS OF ENTRY: VIOLATION OF ANY OF THE ABOVE CRITERIA CAN MEAN SANCTIONS INCLUDING BARRING YOUR ENTRY TO ISRAEL FOR 5 YEARS.

We have an interesting problem that many will have. My kids and their families (10 total people) are on the El Al flight leaving Israel right after Shabbat April 23/24. The day before is chag. The flight is 12ish AM. Where can they go to do the 24 hour testing to return to US if the day before is a chag? How fast is the Emed home testing- we would have to do 10 of them right after Shabbat, like the other few hundred passengers on the plane? Thanks.

At Airport City? How fast do we get the result back? If we get there by 10 PM will we get the result before we get to check in?

Any reports of arrival process in the past few weeks?
Arrival was smooth, fast, and efficient. Tbh it was a very late arrival.

eMed takes 15-20 min per test. I don't think you can do multiple test simultaneously on a single device.

Seeing various reports of what is going on now in TLV, makes me think that making the a choice to fly out of TLV is a form of masochism. It must be really bad in that country to have so many people willing to subject themselves to that.

Approximately 2 hours from entering the terminal until reaching airside (duty-free area).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

@njmacman
When I was in TLV the other week I was told that there are no more rapid tests at the airport.
Call Ichud Hatzalah. You can arrange for them to come to you if you are a group.
