    Israel Visa Policy

    The Israeli government has a visa policy that regulates the issuing of visas and the requirements for visitors to obtain one. As a foreign national planning a trip to Israel, you will most likely need a visa unless you are from a visa-exempt country. Israeli nationals issue visas to applicants through their diplomatic missions abroad or, more recently, through online platforms. However, only applicants with passports valid for at least 6 months and other documents can qualify for visas.

    Israel Visa Exemption

    There is a visa exemption set of countries whose citizens can enter Israel without visas, and these visitors can stay for up to 3 months without visas. If you are from a visa exempt country you automatically qualify for visa waiver so you can visit Israel for tourism without visas. Visa exempt visitors may also visit for business or to visit relatives or even to transit through Israel to another country but they are Ineligible for work.

    There are also some exemptions given to certain nationalities with limited protocols like Egyptian nationals who can stay for up to 14 Days if they visit Beersheba through the Taba Border only, while citizens of the Palestinian Authority can obtain their visa on arrival if they wish to pass through Israeli territory on their way to Palestine.

    To decide whether you need a visa for Israel, consult the updates visa exempt lost to be sure.

    Israel E Visa

    The electronic visa of Israel was introduced to reduce congestion and waiting times for visas at Israeli foreign missions. The e-visa Program was launched in late 2022 and has been in force ever since. Many of the countries that do not make the visa-exempt list are on e-visa list of eligible countries, so if your country is one of them, you can apply for it.

    An electronic visa is issued to successful applicants electronically so they don't have to visit an Israeli foreign mission office to get it.  All they must do is to complete an online application form using their smartphones or computers, attach the necessary documents, pay the e visa application fee and submit for approval. Approval takes a few days after which the visa will be forwarded to the applicant's email address. With this visa they can travel to Israel for tourism, family visits, business and transit.

    Holders of e visas can stay in Israel for up to 90 days and the documents become active the moment it is approved. Overall, your e visa will expire exactly 3 months after it is approved and released to you so you must use it as soon as you get it.

    Only persons from eligible countries may apply for electronic visas.  If you are not from an eligible country or you wish to visit Israel for some other reason besides the ones approved for holders you should visit the nearest Israeli foreign mission office to apply for a consular visa that meets your needs.

    Key Details About Israel e Visa

    Before you decide to apply for an e-visa to Israel, here are some important details to bear in mind.

    Use Approved Routes: It is important to use the approved routes for e-visa visitors when traveling to Israel. Although many routes exist to enter and exit the country, using unapproved routes will lead to entry denial. If you are traveling by air, only the three airports and two border routes listed above should be used.

    Use The Same Passport: Your e-visa is linked to your passport, so make sure you only use the same one for your trip. When you arrive at the airport, the immigration officers will check your passport and match it with the one they have in their system; if it is different, they will deny you entry.

    The e-Visa Expires When The Passport Expires: Although e-visas expire after three months of issue, it is possible for yours to expire sooner if your passport expires before then. To be on the safe side, consider applying for a new passport if yours will expire in less than 6 months in line with the requirements.

    Not For Employment: Bear in mind that your e-visa is not an employment visa but is issued strictly for tourism, business, and transit. If you wish to work in Israel, you should apply for a work visa at the embassy in your country.

    Cover Letter: For a business transit visa, you must provide information about your host and business activities. Cover letters must be signed by you and contain your business history, the purpose of your trip, places of interest you plan to visit, how long you plan to stay, and your entry and exit dates. These dates must match what is on your visa.

    Apply Outside Israel: You can only apply for this visa outside Israel not while you are in the country. Like any other visa this document is an entry document for foreigners who are outside the country; even if you are in the country on a valid visa and you wish to apply for a new one you must exit first before doing so.

    Travel With A Physical Copy: Make sure you print out your electronic visa in paper form and travel with it. Although the immigration officers on duty will be able to generate your visa using your biometric details, holding a physical copy can save you a lot of trouble if there is a need to prove that you are in the country legally.

    Pay The Application Fee Before Your Submit The Form: There is an application fee attached to the entire process which must be paid for before you can submit it for approval. This fee is payable online but not with cash. You can pay it with your credit or debit card.

    Don't Overstay: Your evisa expires 90 days after it is issued so you must not stay a day longer; if you do you will be sanctioned by the Israeli government for being an illegal resident in the country.
