All visitors to Israel must hold a passport that is valid for at least six months from the date they are departing the country. People with no nationality must hold a valid laissezpasser, as well as a visa back to the country that issued it.
Many countries have a Visa Waiver Program with Israel, which allows their citizens to visit Israel without a visa arranged in advance. Before embarking on a trip, visitors desiring to stop in Israel on their way to other destinations must check if they need a prearranged tourist visa. The list of countries in the following link specifies from which countries tourists are required to present a prearranged visa.
All Visa Waiver Program travelers must present a machine-readable passport at the port of entry in order to enter Israel without a prearranged visa; otherwise, a visa is required.
This applies to tourists arriving with a passage card from countries with a Waiver Program.
We advise an early application for participants who require a prearranged visa. Participants who require a signed and stamped letter are kindly requested to provide the following information to the Conference Secretariat at [email protected]
