ISRAEL VISA AND PASSPORT REQUIREMENTS

Passports: To enter Israel, a passport valid for a minimum of six months from the date you are leaving Israel is required.

Passport note: Due to a lack of diplomatic relations between Israel and many Arabic or predominantly Muslim countries, those with Israel entry stamps in their passports will not be allowed entry. Since January 2013, visitors are given an entry card instead of a stamp on arrival which you must keep until you leave.

Visas: Some nationals need a visa for entering Israel. Please visit mfa.gov.il for more information.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

Common travel problems like flight delays, travel injuries and illnesses, unpredictable weather and lost or stolen luggage are why we recommend travel insurance. We recommend Travel Guard® and World Nomad travel insurance plan.

ISRAEL CULTURE

Israelis are usually very informal, but with the European style of hospitality. Israelis are typically blunt and direct in speech, which should not be misinterpreted as rudeness. Visitors should observe normal courtesies and should not be afraid to ask questions, most Israelis are happy to talk about their homeland.

The expression Shalom (peace) is used for hello and good- bye. Dress is casual, but in the holy places of all religions

modest attire is worn. For places such as the Western Wall, male visitors are given a smart cardboard yarmulke (skull cap) to respect the religious importance of the site.

It is considered a violation of Shabbat (Sabbath, on Saturday) to smoke on that day. There is usually a sign to remind the visitor of this, and to disregard the warning would be regarded as discourteous.

LANGUAGE

Hebrew and Arabic are the official languages of Israel. A large portion of the population speaks good English.

WEATHER

Winter in Israel starts in October-November and ends in March.  It should be noted that "Winter" in Israel will not look too serious with temperatures in Tel Aviv that can move in average between 62-72 F in the day and 50-60 at night but it can be unpredictable and get colder than this. It rains here and there but sunny days are not a rare thing in Israeli winter.
