Every passenger must submit a photocopy of the inside cover of their passport prior to the start of the program. The copy can sent to us by email, fax, or postal mail. We definitely encourage you to submit your passport copy as soon as you are confirmed on the program.
If you plan to travel to Israel on a USA, Canadian, or European Union passport, you do NOT need a visa to enter Israel. If you are traveling on a passport from another country (e.g. Russia, Ukraine, etc.) you may need to obtain a visa to enter Israel. If you are traveling on a “USA Travel Document” in place of a passport, you will need a visa and you should contact your local Israel Consulate immediately. For more information, please contact one of the regional Israel Consulate offices listed below.
If you plan to travel to Israel and are a citizen of another country besides the USA, Canada, or European Union passport, you may require a visa. Please contact your consulate to determine the exact requirements or our office for general inquiries.
All visitors to Israel must arrive with a passport that does not expire within six months from the date that you depart Israel. If your passport expires less than six months after your last day in Israel, you will need to renew your passport immediately or you may not be allowed entry into Israel.
