Midreshet Amit

Arrival and Visa Information

Dear Parents,

It has come to our attention that visa renewal for students under age 18 is recommended before the students arrival to Israel.  If you will not yet be 18 by September 15th , you will not be able to get your visa extension through Midreshet Amit in Israel as we cannot renew your visa without parental permission. Please contact your local consulate and arrange for a student visa in advance.  There is a list of items you will need to bring with you to the consulate (as well as BOTH parents) so make sure you have that information.

If you are over 18, upon your arrival, your passport will be stamped with a three month tourist visa. Midreshet AMIT will obtain a one year student visa for students who are over 18 years old from the Misrad HaPnim in Jerusalem.

Students who have Israeli citizenship or an Israeli parent may have to apply for Israeli passports.  It is advisable to check into this issue before you come to Israel.  If you have Israeli citizenship, you can receive an exemption from the IDF by filing the necessary request form at the Israel Consulate nearest to your home. Please submit your current passport number and citizenship to our office by email (midrasha@amit.org.il).

Please note: Your passport must be valid for six months after the end of the school year (December 2015).

We are looking forward to a wonderful year!
