Israel has reversed a ban on the iPad and said users can bring in the device without worrying that customs officials will seize it.

The country’s communications ministry said it reached its decision after completing “intensive technical scrutiny.”

The scrutiny conducted by the ministry technical team vis-a-vis Apple’s team, International laboratory and European counterparts confirmed that the device which could be operated in various standards will be operated in Israel in accordance to the local standards,” the communications ministry said Saturday evening.

In the past two weeks, Israelis and tourists entering the country at Ben Gurion Airport have had their iPads taken by customs officials.

Israeli authorities said the devices’ Wi-Fi standard does not match Israel’s standard, which is also used in Europe.
