Assistance in getting to your first address in Israel

When arranging Aliyah from overseas, the Jewish Agency for Israel is delighted to make you a gift of a one-way airline ticket to Israel from specific ports of departure.

For information regarding available ports of departure and arrangements from other locations, please speak to your local Aliyah office.

In most cases, you'll also be entitled to take additional baggage on your flight with you – speak to your local Aliyah office for specific details.

Once you arrive in Israel, having gone through initial processing at the airport, the Ministry of Aliyah and Immigrant Absorption will arrange free transportation to your first address.
