Israel Visa and Passport Requirements
|Passport required||Return ticket required||Visa required|
To enter Israel, a passport valid for a minimum of six months from the date of entry is required by the nationals referred to in the chart above.
Due to a lack of diplomatic relations between Israel and many Arabic or predominantly Muslim countries, those with Israel entry stamps in their passports will not be allowed entry. Visitors are now given an entry card instead of a stamp on arrival which you must keep until you leave. As of March 2017, foreign nationals may be refused entry to Israel if they have publicly called for a boycott of the country, or support an organisation that has called for it.
Visas are not required by nationals referred to in the chart above for stays of up to 90 days.
An A/1 temporary resident visa can be issued to those who are eligible for immigration under the Law of Return.
Processing for visas for Israel should take around seven days, although it may take up to a month. Working days in Israel are from Sunday to Thursday.
Your visa can be extended (there is a fee) at the Ministry of the Interior office in Israel.
Israel does not quarantine healthy pets who meet the following requirements: pets must have a 15-digit ISO pet microchip and must be vaccinated against rabies at least 30 days (but not more than one year) before travel. More than 30 days after vaccination, your pet must have a blood titer test. Within 10 days of travel, the Israel Veterinary Certificate must be completed by a veterinarian. Pets under the age of three months cannot be imported to Israel.
