Israel Visa and Passport Requirements

Passport required Return ticket required Visa Required
British Yes Yes No
Australian Yes Yes No
Canadian Yes Yes No
USA Yes Yes No
Other EU Yes Yes No

Passports

To enter Israel as a tourist, 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.

Passport Note

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 to enter the Arabic countries in question. To alleviate this issue, visitors are now given an entry card instead of a stamp on arrival to Israel, 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

Visas are not required by nationals referred to in the chart above for stays of up to 90 days for the purpose of tourism.

Temporary residence

An A/1 temporary resident visa can be issued to those who are eligible for immigration under the Law of Return.

Sufficient Funds

You may need to provide proof of sufficient funds when entering Israel.

Extension of stay

A visitor who wishes to extend his visit must submit an application at one of the regional population administration offices of the Ministry of the Interior.

Entry with pets

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 and stamped by the country of origin. Pets under the age of three months cannot be brought into Israel.
