{{disclaimerbox|Note that security measures above and beyond what you might encounter in most countries are taken for flights both to and from Israel. These measures are undertaken for your safety and security. On arrival in Israel, as with all countries, passengers will be required to go through passport control, where it is possible that you will be pulled aside for additional questioning. Upon departure from Israel, arriving at the terminal ''at least'' three hours before your flight is well advised, as Israeli security procedures can be time-consuming. Bag inspection, both by machine and hand, is routine and should be expected, in addition to and interview about your time in Israel. The interview is casual, as the security personnel just want to ensure that you are not a potential threat. If travelling as part of a group, questioning will be done individually.}}
