  • Your passport must not include the stamp of entry or exit of Israel, since in this case you will be denied the visa.

Visa at the airport of entry

An alternative for obtaining the visa is, once the reference number or the pre-visa is issued, the traveler upon arrival at the airport of entry and request the visa in the passport control showing the pre-visa document and paying the corresponding fees. The process is safe and simple although it may take longer, because of the waiting.
