Passport, Visa, Health, and Travel Information

U.S. citizens need a passport valid at least six months beyond the tour return date. Passport applications are available at the U.S. Department of State website. There are no vaccination or visa requirements for U.S. citizens to enter Israel, Palestine and Jordan. Consult with your physician and utilize the information on Travelers’ Health on the Centers for Disease Control website for advised precautions.

Non-U.S. citizens are responsible for their own passport and any visa requirements for the countries visited and must travel with a permanent resident card or other documentation to re-enter the U.S. Without proper documents, entry could be denied at participant’s expense.

For international travel information including country specific background, travel alerts and travel warnings, refer to the website of the U.S. State Department.

Travelers are required to walk significant distances including uneven surfaces, steps and inclines during parts of the itinerary. All tours and visits in the Old City of Jerusalem are by foot. Consult with Seminars International or your tour leadership if you have concerns or questions about the amount and level of walking required to fully participate.
