Update
ETA-IL update | 01/07/2024
ETA-IL system pilot phase:
Starting from July 1st, 2024 the ETA-IL system will be open for application submissions as a pilot program for all nationalities that are exempt from tourist visa to Israel. During the pilot phase, submitting an application will be voluntary and exempt from fees.

What is ETA-IL?

The rules for  travel to Israel have changed. Starting from August 2024, visitors from visa-exempt countries are required to obtain an ETA-IL(Electronic Travel Authorization) to enter the state of Israel. An approved ETA-IL, indicates that you are allowed to travel to Israel and stay for up to 90 days per visit. 

All travelers to Israel must have a valid visa or an ETA-IL approval before they start their journey. If you are eligible, obtaining an ETA-IL is a simpler and faster process. Learn more

Note: Israeli citizens or holders of an Israeli identity number do not need to apply for an ETA-IL.

FAQ:

The system will be opened as a pilot for citizens of visa – exempt countries on July 1st, 2024

The pilot is intended to allow travelers to become familiar with the new regulations regarding entry into Israel, so submitting the application during the pilot period is optional.

Applications may be submitted at any time prior to travel to Israel. The Population and Immigration Authority recommends that travel authorization applications be submitted at least 72 hours prior to any booking of flight tickets, hotel rooms and other similar expenses that are related your planned travel to Israel.

Your ETA-IL authorization is generally valid for multiple trips over a period of up to two years from the date your application is approved, or until your passport expires, whichever comes first. This means that as long as you received an ETA-IL authorization to travel, you do not have to reapply during the validity period.

If your ETA-IL expires while in Israel, it will not affect your departure.

You can correct your application as long as the form has not been submitted yet. The final step of the application before submission allows you to review your data. After submission, you cannot correct the form, and you will need to fill out a new form.

If you are a citizen of an eligible country that does not require a B/2 visa for Israel, you must complete an ETA-IL form.
