Important Information to Israeli Citizens and Tourists of Israel

Both minor and adult Israeli citizens should have an Israeli passport that is valid with them at all times, when traveling or staying abroad. The documents emitted by the Israeli Government for the purpose of travel, meaning passport and laissez passer, are considered to be the property of the state, so they should be well protected by the holder. The law requires every Israeli citizen to present a passport each time he or she enters and leaves the country.

In the case of an adult, the Israeli passport has a 10-year effect. In case of children, it will have only a 5-year effect. Check your passport and if it has expired, you will have to contact the mission for getting a new and valid one. If your passport has not expired yet, but will do in a short while, you can opt for extending your travel document for another 10 years.


How to extend an Israeli passport

  • For adults

If you want to extend the effect of your passport, you will have to fill in the appropriate form. Then attach the form to your current passport and send the two documents together to the Consular Department at the mission. There is no free required for extending the passport.

  • For children

One can extend the passport of a child for another 5 years, or until the child is 17 years old. At this age, the military status will have to be determined, once this is accomplished, the passport of the minor is suitable to receive approval from the IDF authorities. If you need more info about how to extend the passport of a minor, you will have to contact the mission’s Consular Department.


How to renew a Israeli passport that has expired

  • For adults

You will have to send or e-mail the following documents to the mission, if you want to renew an expired passport:

  • An application for a new passport that was completed and signed by you;
  • Two photos for passport;
  • The expired passport;
  • Payment of the required fee;


  • For children

As mentioned before, it is recommended to contact the mission’s Consular Department concerning the details of issuing a new passport for a minor.


How to renew Israeli documents for traveling if they have been stolen, lost or destroyed

If you have lost your documents, they have been stolen, or accidentally destroyed; you will need to visit the mission for issuing of a replacing document. You will need to have some documents with you, as following:

  • Two photos for passport;
  • An ID with picture;
  • A filled in declaration about what happened with your documents (theft/destruction/loss). Do remember that this declaration will have to be signed in front of the representative of the consulate;
  • An application for the new passport, which was filled in and signed;
  • Because the Israeli passport is considered to be the property of the state, a higher fee will be required in case of theft/loss/destruction.


United Kingdom citizens do not need for an Israeli visa in case of a stay that is no longer than 90 days.

What other information would be useful in case of a trip to Israel? First of all, you should make sure that your passport is valid.

The minimum requirement concerning the validity of a passport is at least 90 days since your departure date from Israel. Still, it is highly recommended to have 6-month validity on the passport at all times. For further information regarding the issuing and renewal of British passports, all British citizens should visit to www.ips.gov.uk.

Another thing you should check is the presence of blank visa pages.

Many countries, which include Israel as well, have as requirement the existence of blank and unused pages in the visa section, just in case you will need any additional stamps. So, it is best to have a minimum of two blank pages in this section, whenever you need to travel abroad. You should also know that you can have additional visa pages added to your current passport, if you just visit www.ips.gov.uk.

Last, but not least, see if you need a visa where you will be traveling.

Contact the traveling or Airline Company to see in what countries your plane will stop on the way to your destination. You may stop in countries where the existence of a transit visa is required. If you need such a visa, you will have to check the visa requirements of that particular country.
