Visa Requirements for Israeli Citizens
Visa requirements for Israeli citizens are administrative entry regulations placed on holders of a passport from Israel by authorities around the world. They dictate if Israeli nationals require a visa or travel authorization to enter a specific foreign territory or if they may do so visa-free.
At present, the Henley passport index places the Israeli passport at 24th in terms of travel freedom, tied with Barbados, as citizens of Israel are able to travel to approximately 120 countries across the globe visa-free or with a visa on arrival.
Additionally, Israelis are able to visit roughly 20 destinations worldwide using an electronic travel authorization or eVisa issued through an expedited application process, which removes the need to wait in long border queues to obtain a visa on arrival at ports of entry.
Electronic Travel Visa Authorizations for citizens of Israel permit stays of between 28 days up to 120 days depending on the country of issue and most often permit entry for tourism, business, or transit purposes, as well as medical treatment in some cases.
The countries that allow entry to Israelis without a visa permit a visa-free stay of between 30 and 360 days depending on the destination.
To travel to any of these countries for longer periods of time or for purposes such as to work or study, it is necessary to apply for a consular or embassy visa for Israeli citizens from the nearest diplomatic government office of the destination.
Additionally, nationals of Israel are required to obtain an embassy visa to visit up to 90 countries worldwide regardless of the intended period of stay or travel purpose.
