This court ruling was months ago

Yup. Looks like price is about to triple.

I wonder if Omega will be able to set up shop elsewhere for those prices.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I don't know anything about this but it would probably be useful to tell ppl here where you're going. I think what you need probably depends on the entry requirements of the country that you're flying to.

I'd love to know the answer to this too. It seems COVID tests in israel are ridiculously expensive for no reason other than to make money off the tourists.  The average COVID test costs a provider $5 or less in the US.

Would love if someone could break down affordable places to test, including ANTIBODY testing post-landing. I do see various free covid testing sites in Jerusalem, but are those for citizens only?

A covid test is free to anyone with Kupat Cholim.
If you don't go through Kupat Cholim you're asking for "bespoke" private medicine, which costs...

Does anyone know if they allow taking a regular taxi or someone picking you up to take you to the bidud location when leaving the airport - or is there a specific system?
Are there any phone companies with open stores at the airport selling SIMs?

Crazy that Israel is still closed for vaccinated when they seem to be headed now towards a day with single digits of covid cases.

Not agreeing or disagreeing, but how many people would have said the same thing last November 1. And then how many of those same people in January of 2021 were  critical that we opened too fast?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Facts on the ground are different. Who was vaccinated in November?

Landing at 12:25. Feel like Shamir would be my best bet but cannot seem to make appointment online without TZ, and cannot get through on phone. Any ideas?

Is there a real concern that the Indian variant is a danger to vaccinated people? If there is, I get why they would not open up so fast.

Does kupat Cholim (Clalilit) do free antibody tests for members arriving in Israel to get out of bidud?

The problem is that the media and politicians aren’t capable of discerning a medically accurate concern from a scariant.

Try the phone during Israeli business hours. Otherwise, try Sheeba via WhatsApp (second cheapest, and approximately similar travel time from airport).

So when there's a will there's a way to have antibody testing at the airport (with the question about the outcome for those that aren't above the threshold unanswered). Will this be implemented otherwise?
