Israel Entry Information

Ben Gurion Airport Israel

Information for Silent Word Ministries “Deaf Tour of Israel” April 29-May 10, 2024


A valid U.S. passport good until November 11, 2024 or beyond is required for entrance into Israel. Get a passport application at your local post office. SWM will be asking your passport number in December, 2023. No Visa is required for US citizens.


Travelers registering for the tour accept the responsibility for being in good health. Many of the sites in Israel are not accessible to physically challenged people. SWM is not accepting travelers needing walkers, wheelchairs, oxygen, or other special assistance. A hiking pole is recommended for everyone in some of the locations.

The tour group will walk an average of 5 miles a day — possibly more in the “Old City” of Jerusalem.
