permit valid for three months will be issued on arrival. Please note that it is common practice to request
a “loose leaf” visa if you do not wish to have an Israeli entry stamp in your passport. This is advisable as
there are countries which will not permit entry to anyone with an Israeli stamp in their passport, such as
Lebanon & Syria.

Hebrew do not go astray. The typical greeting Shalom is used to express hello and goodbye.
