All students will automatically receive a 3-month tourist visa upon arrival at Ben-Gurion airport. The Yeshiva will arrange for the visa renewal for your son.
HOWEVER, IF YOUR SON IS UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE (AS OF DECEMBER 31, 2023) YOU MUST ARRANGE FOR HIS VISA OVERSEAS BEFORE HIS ARRIVAL AT THE NEAREST ISRAELI CONSULATE.
If either parent is Israeli, or if your son has an Israeli ID number (mispar zehut), your son might be considered Israeli and will need to make arrangements with the local Israeli consulate before arriving in Israel. From past experience, we highly recommend consulting with us first about your situation so we can advise you accordingly.
Passports must be valid for 1 ½ years from time of arrival in Israel in order to receive a 1-year student visa. Please notify our office of any passport renewals.
