"Security check at the airport" Israel Warnings Or Dangers Tip by tmsznowak

Israel Warnings and Dangers: 86 reviews and 63 photos

Be prepared for a very tough security check in Ben Gurion Airport when leaving Israel. I was asked dozens of questions about my stay. Every piece of my belongings was very scrupulously checked. I was taken to the private room, had to leave my luggage be the x-ray machines alone. They took my mobile phone and wallet away too. Nobody explained anything. When they finished checking nobody apologised for the inconvinience, nobody said thank you. After a very nice stay in Israel, during the security I was feeling like an intruder rather than tourist.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
