When to Go Apr-May: In April, the rainy season is ending, the temperature is in the 70s, and the pools and beaches are open to the public. Easter and Passover are quite an experience for pilgrims and Israelis have a two-week long vacation. May brings perfect weather, no crowds and beautiful scenery.

June - August: This can be a busy time as American families arrive during their school break. But Tel Aviv nightlife picks up even more steam than usual in summer, since the universities have let out.

Sept-Oct: The weather starts to cool and the crowds disappear. A good time to travel but avoid arriving on the eve of Yom Kippur, as the whole country grinds to a halt and the week-long holiday of Sukkot when Israelis go on vacation.

Nov- Jan: There is beautiful weather and no crowds, but the summer brings dusty skies and beige slumber. December and January can be cool and wet, but great for the authentic Christmas experience.

Feb-Mar: February is a perfect time for trekking. The hills of Judea, Galilee, and the Golan Heights are covered with wildflowers and grass, and the weather is cool. The Jewish holiday of Purim has become a major week-long celebration in March. A cross between Halloween and Mardi Gras, there are day and night festivals and street parties in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. There may be some rain.

Getting There Israel’s main international airport Ben-Gurion (TLV) is approximately 20 minutes by train or taxi from Tel Aviv and 45 minutes by taxi from Jerusalem. The other international airport is Eilat, at the southern tip of Israel, but it is mainly used for direct charter package flights from Europe and flights from inside the country.

Visa British nationals do not need a visa to enter Israel as a tourist. On entry, visitors are granted leave to enter for a period of up to 3 months. In the past the Israeli immigration authorities stamped passports and on request agreed to stamp landing cards instead. Since January 2013 a pilot scheme has been introduced whereby visitors are given an entry card instead of an entry stamp on arrival. You should keep this card with your passport until you leave. This is evidence of your legal entry into Israel and may be required, particularly at any crossing points into the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Passport validity: Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
