Do Indians Need Visa For Israel

Israeli tourist visa is not required for Indians. But they need special permission, which they can get by applying online at the Ministry of Immigration and Population website through their Ministry of Interior. You cannot enter on your own visa but if you want to visit this place this is required to do.

Sure, we all dream about going to exotic places, visiting new countries and discovering local culture. Some people actually have the courage to do this. One of the most beautiful and interesting countries in Asia is Israel, which has intrigued me from the very beginning. It possesses a fascinating history with ties to both Judaism and Islam. So I started thinking about going there one day. After doing my research and speaking with several people from Israel who live there now I decided this will be a great trip for me!
