Your ETA-IL will stay valid for up to 2 years, or until your current passport expires – whichever comes first

If you obtain a new passport or change your name, gender or country of citizenship, you will be required to apply for a new travel authorization.

What can you do with an ETA-IL?

You can apply for an ETA-IL if:

 

Obtaining an ETA-IL does not constitute a guarantee of entry into Israel.

An Electronic Travel Authorization only allows you to reach the border-crossing into Israel, but does not grant you permission to enter or reside in Israel. When you arrive at the border-crossing, you will be checked by a border control officer, who may determine that you are not authorized to enter Israel.

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