1st timer to Tel Aviv--leaving Toronto on AC: extra security?
« on: November 09, 2018, 11:38:08 PM »
Hi everybody: I will be stopping over in Toronto and taking an Air Canada flight to Tel Aviv. I know that entry immigration at TLV will be very thorough.

At the Toronto airport, is there also extra security for TLV-bound flights? If so, how much more time do I need to budget? Will be flying J class and have Global Entry, if these make a difference. Thanks a million.

There is just extra security check at the gate area. They may swab your hands and bag, that's about it. Don't need to budget extra time (there may be a line, but you definitely won't miss the flight for it) (I try to come after boarding has started and the line has cleared)
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.
