Visa to Israel
It is recommended that students planning to arrive in Israel for a post-doctoral internship acquire a multiple-entry A/2 student visa from the Israeli Consulate in their country of residence before arriving in Israel. This visa is generally issued for 12 months; thus students who are coming for the year are advised to obtain the visa close to their date of departure. If needed, the visa can be extended yearly until the end of the student's studies.
If you are coming with family (spouse and/or child) they should acquire multiple-entry accompanying family A/4 visa prior to arrival in Israel. Please bring with you copies of your marriage license and your children's birth certificates (official English translations), as applicable.
Please note that holders of A/2 student visas and A/4 accompanying family visas are not allowed to work in Israel. Students are allowed to receive fellowships.
All students at the Hebrew University, including part-time and external students, must have health insurance coverage for the period of their studies.
