Entry Requirements for Israel

All travelers are required to have a visa and a passport showing at least 6 months validity post departure date from Israel. One blank page is required for a visa stamp, although Planet Depos does recommend traveling with at least two blank visa pages. Many flights from the United States do not require any stopover in another country, but if you do have a connecting flight, you will need to check any country or countries you pass through to determine if a separate transit visa is required.

Money Matters

Israel’s currency is the Israeli New Shekel. However, the U.S. dollar is accepted in places accustomed to dealing with tourists. You can change money with more convenience at licensed exchange booths in shopping centers than at a bank, which will charge a commission.

Major credit cards – American Express, Diners, Visa, MasterCard – are widely accepted in Israeli restaurants, hotels, and stores. You can also withdraw local currency at banks which accept your credit card. ATMs are widely available.

For up-to-date information on the local conversion rate, please visit a reputable currency converter website such as http://www.oanda.com/currency/converter/, which also offers an app for smartphones.

Weather

Israel summers (April-October) are typically warm and dry with temperatures in the 80’s or 90’s, while winters (November-March) are relatively mild, with temperatures ranging in the 50’s-60’s. Regional conditions do vary. For example, summers are more humid on the coast while winters in the mountainous region are colder and include the occasional snowfall. Spring and autumn see sporadic hot winds which cause temperatures to skyrocket, but for the most part are extremely pleasant, with temperatures in the 60’s-70’s.
