DO I NEED VISA TO TRAVEL TO PALESTINE AND ISRAEL? PASSPORT?

FAQ

Passport: First, it is important to note that your passport, no matter what nation it is issued from, must be valid for at least 6 months after your return date. Be sure that your passport is up to date!

Israel controls all points of entry and exit for both Israel & Palestine.  Citizens of more than 100 countries, such as member states of the European Union, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and almost all countries of North, Central & South America, and several countries in Asia, receive on-arrival visas in the form of an electronic paper slip that can easily fit into your passport. If you are uncertain about your eligibility for an on-arrival visa due to your citizenship by passport, please cheek if you need to get in advance visa:  https://mfa.gov.il/MFA/ConsularServices/Documents/VisaRequirements-Tourists.pdf

If you need to apply for a visa in advance, Please refer, about one month or 40 days prior to the visit, to the nearest Israeli Embassy in your place of residence to complete the relevant visa application forms. We will provide you with the necessary document proof of reservation of the tour once we have finalized and confirmed your participation in the forthcoming tour.

If there is no Israeli embassy in your country, in certain conditions we will ask and apply for a visa for you from the Ministry of Interior in Jerusalem. 

Some additional information for tourists according to the Israeli Ministry of the Interior:

  • If you are a member of a group of ten persons or more and want to book a tour together, we can apply for a group visa for you.  For some nationalities we need minimum of 35 days before arrival; please contact us for further details.
  • For certain nationalities such as Indonesia and Malaysia, we can apply for a visa for a group of five participants.
  • Groups from Arabs and Muslims countries can get a visa to visit Jerusalem.
  • Visa fees must be paid at the time of your application.
  • Please note that a visa request does not mean acceptance of the application. The ministry can give the answer on demand one or two weeks before the trip, but sometimes even a single day beforehand.  We will work with you to find solutions for difficult, compressed timeframes.
  •  The Israeli Ministry of Interior retains the right to deny visas to any client in the manifest or reject all the manifest without giving any justification. 
  • Please note that we cannot be held responsible if a person or group is refused a visa or access to Palestine and Israel by the Israeli authorities for whatever reason.
