Ben Gurion Airport, named after the first Prime Minister, is Israel's main airport. It is located at the heart of the country, 40 km from Jerusalem and 15 km from Tel Aviv. The Airport has two main terminals: Terminal 3 for international flights and Terminal 1 for domestic and low-cost international flights.
Upon arrival to Israel, passengers will receive a small paper slip with the entry date stamped on it.
This slip is a scan of the passenger's passport and has 2 functions:
1. To serve as an ID while traveling in Israel
2. To provide proof of holding a foreign passport
During hotel check-in, the reception clerk might ask you to present this slip. Your passport alone may not be sufficient to waive VAT. Please treat this slip as you would your passport and keep it in a secure and accessible place throughout your visit to Israel.
