According to the Embassy of Israel in Manila, Filipinos don’t need to obtain a tourist visa before departing for Israel. Instead, visitors will be interviewed at the port of entry.
These are the documents you will need to present:
- Confirmed round trip ticket with onward flight
- Philippine passports – must be valid for more than six months after the intended date of return
- Sufficient pocket money worth at least US$2,000 (cash or travellers cheque)
- Confirmed hotel reservations
- If an establishment or tourist agency is sponsoring your trip, you will also need to present a letter of invitation from them.
- Entry to Israel is not guaranteed even if you have the documents listed above.
- Visas are required for people who intend to work or study in Israel. To schedule an appointment, scan the data page of your passport, indicate the intended date of travel to Israel, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Answer the security questionnaire that will be sent to you. You will then receive an email indicating your appointment schedule along with a list of documents required for your visa application.
- Do not transact with people who claim they can obtain Israeli visas for a fee.
