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.

Does anyone else think this headline is misleading / badly written?
https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/featured/2086728/good-news-flying-to-israel-pre-flight-covid-test-requirement-to-be-dropped.html

shouldn't it say post flight?
Dov Lipman claims it will be removed also pre flight. I don't see any other source and don't trust him

Not that it excuses the headline, because the article is talking about post flight, but this from the igud hayeshivos folks

So is that for non-citizens also? Are we exempt from preflight testing when flying usa to israel? Their article talks about some testing but the headline says no. Sorry but I am confused!

to quote my friend who has a taxi service, "you can get there 2 hours before and it will also be fine".

I know Israel doesn't require negative covid tests anymore. If one is flying to Israel with a stopover in Germany though, does Lufthansa require a negative test for the short transit in Germany?

Yes (alternatively, proof of vaccination or recovery according to German standards)

Thanks! Would you know where one can get a rapid test in Brooklyn or Lakewood?

I'm assuming Antigen is good, or do you need PCR?
