State of Israel : Travel Passport

The Israeli passport ( דרכון ישראלי‎‎‎ darkon Israeli ) is a travel document issued to Israeli citizens to enable them to travel outside of Israel, and entitles the holder to the protection of Israel's consular offices overseas.

Israeli travel documents began to be issued in 1948, after the Israeli Declaration of Independence on 14 May 1948, and used Hebrew and French texts. At first the documents were not defined as a passport but as a laissez-passer travel document, this changed towards the late of the year 1952 when Israel began to properly named the document as a passport.

The first Israeli passports bore the limitation: Valid to any country except Germany in Hebrew and French. An Israeli citizen who wished to visit Germany had to ask that the words except Germany be deleted from their passport. This was done manually by drawing a line through these words. After the signing of the Reparations Agreement between Israel and West Germany in 1952, the limitation was withdrawn and passports became valid to all countries.

On 30 March 1980, new regulations issued by the Minister of the Interior required Israeli passports to use Hebrew and English, instead of Hebrew and French. Subsequently, French were replaced by English texts.

Since 2013, biometric passports have been introduced. To obtain a biometric passport, "an applicant will have to appear in an Interior Ministry office to be photographed by the special camera which records information such as facial bone structure, distance between one's eyes, ears to eyes and ratio of facial features one from another. One will also be fingerprinted and all this information will be contained in the new high-tech electronic passport."


Israeli passports are issued by Population and Immigration Authority (PIA).

In the early days of the state, passports were issued only for two years. Afterwards, a passport was issued for a period of 5 years, with the possibility of extending it for another five years.

With the issuance of biometric passports, adult's document is valid for 10 years and minors under age 16 only for 5.

The inner pages are decorated with the Israeli emblem of olive branches and the seven-branched menorah. A regular passport contains 32 pages, and a business passport contains 64 pages.

Israeli passports are valid for up to 10 years for persons over the age of 18. They are bilingual, using Hebrew and English. Since Hebrew is written from right to left, the passports are opened from their right end and their pages are arranged from right to left. 


The statement in an Israeli passport declares in Hebrew and English:
שר הפנים של מדינת ישראל מבקש בזה את כל הנוגעים בדבר להרשות לנושא דרכון זה לעבור ללא עכוב והפרעה ולהושיט לו במקרה הצורך את ההגנה והעזרה הדרושה.‎

The Minister of the Interior of the State of Israel hereby requests all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer of this passport to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford him such assistance and protection as may be necessary.


The information on the back endpaper was printed only in Hebrew.
