Israel Visa Information:
| The birthplace of the Jewish people is the Land of Israel (Eretz Yisrael). There, a significant part of the nation's long history was enacted, of which the first thousand years are recorded in the Bible; there, its cultural, religious and national identity was formed; and there, its physical presence has been maintained through the centuries, even after the majority was forced into exile.
Matters relating to immigration (aliya) are usually handled by aliya emissaries of the Jewish Agency.
The Israeli mission will issue the immigration visa on the recommendation of the Jewish Agency representative, after the latter has concluded his part of the process.
Israel has agreements for the abolition of visa requirements with 65 countries. Nationals of countries without such agreements who wish to visit Israel must submit to the nearest Israeli mission a completed visa application form as well as photograph and his/hers travel document. Information about the need for a visa can be found at your local Israeli mission.
