Israel’s coronavirus commissioner, Prof. Nachman Ash, announced Wednesday that citizens traveling abroad would now have to start paying for coronavirus testing. Until now, Israelis could be tested for free in their kupat cholim.

Visitors entering the country may also be required to cover the cost of coronavirus testing upon entering Israel.
