    General information
    All Israeli citizens staying abroad, both minors and adults, must carry a valid Israeli travel document with them at all times. The travel documents issued by the State of Israel to its citizens (passports and laissez passer) are the property of the State and should be carefully safeguarded.
     
    Note that Israeli citizens are required by law always to enter and exit Israel with an Israeli travel document.
     
    An Israeli passport issued to an adult is valid for 10 years, and for 5 years for a minor.
    For adults - if 10 years have passed since the passport was issued a new one must be issued.
    For minors - if 5 years have passed since the passport was issued a new one must be issued.
