Issuing and Extending Travel Documents

  •  
     
    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.
     
    According to the Population Registry Law, the issue or extension of travel documents is contingent upon the personal status (married, divorced, widowed, etc.) being up-to-date. please refer to the Personal Status Update section in our website. In the absence of such updated details, a travel document will be issued for one year only.
