Chaim V’chessed reports that Israeli A-class visa holders, such as permanent residents, students, and their families, can now travel to Israel without a pre-flight PCR.
This information has already been updated on the Israel Health Ministry’s site, so hopefully airlines got the memo as well.
You will still need to take a PCR upon landing in Israel and quarantine until you get back negative results or until 24 hours lave lapsed.
Unfortunately tourists still require a pre-flight PCR. That’s something that many countries across the globe have been dropping. Canada dropped their pre-flight PCR requirement last week and most European countries have done the same if you’re fully vaccinated. Even Australia will drop their pre-flight testing requirements next week.
Hopefully Israel and the US do the same as well.
