Israel Visa – How To Apply For A Israeli Visa

If you are looking to travel to Israel, you will not need a visa in order to do so for up to 90 days. If you are a United States citizen, you will not need an Israel visa to visit Israel. Though a visa is not necessary for travel to that country, you will need to ensure the following are in order.

Check passport validity – All travelers to Israel will need a passport that is valid for at least 90 days after they depart Israel. The ideal amount of validity time that should be left on your passport when you depart a country should be roughly 6 months.

Blank visa pages – Israel along with many other countries require at least two blank visa pages in your passport book when you arrive and depart Israel. This will permit any necessary stamps that will need to be stamped in your passport during your travel.

Transit Visa – Sometimes a transit visa is required when traveling to a country on a connecting flight. Countries that your fight stops at overseas may need to see a transit visa when connecting flights.

In conclusion, it is important to note that you will need to check to make sure that your existing passport has enough blank pages to accommodate any stamps and stickers that may be necessary upon arrival. Most experts recommend that you keep at least two full blank pages in your passport for this reason.

Keep in mind, there is a security screening for American citizens entering Israel. You may be asked to leave the country if your security screening does not meet the requirements of the Israeli immigration.
