Just before you go

Whether this is your first trip to Israel or you are already veteran visitor, you'll need to pack a bag, and you’ll want to pack it right. The simple list below will help you make sure you bring the essential things you need to have.


Just before you go

Clothing for year-round

  1. Sunglasses, swimwear, and a hat
  2. Casual clothes,  comfortable closed walking shoes or sneakers, and sandals/flip-flops for walking in water

Clothing for Summertime – April to October:

  1. Loose-fitting and lightweight clothing – cotton or linen garments.
  2. Even in the summer, Jerusalem and the desert can be cool in the evening and most places in Israel are fully air-conditioned – a sweater or other lightweight warm layers could come handy
  3. Sunscreen and insect repellent

Clothing for Autumn – Spring – Late October to April

Winters in Israel are mild compared to North America. But you should bring with you a light, waterproof jacket, long pants, a sweater, hat, umbrella, and gloves.

Don’t forget to pack in your hand luggage:

  1. Passport / visa; photocopy of your passport information page; credit cards / cash;
  2. Health & travel insurance documents;
  3. Prescription medications; mobile device; charger; camera;
