Leaving Israel  

Security Check

Passengers must arrive at the airport three hours before departure time.

Passengers arriving at the airport must first undergo a security check.  Passengers and their luggage are inspected by airport personnel with modern security equipment.  There are separate security check lines for passengers holding Israeli passports and for those holding foreign passports in order to shorten waiting time. 

Passport control

After the security check in the departure hall, passengers continue to passport control.  They must present their passport, airline ticket, and the form that they filled out upon arrival in Israel.


Check-In

After passport control each passenger must check in at the counter of the airline they are flying.  They will then check in their luggage and receive a boarding pass and seat number.

Passengers who have checked in early can arrive at the airport an hour and a half before flight time and proceed directly to passport control.
