Making Aliyah from the USA or Canada

In North America, The Jewish Agency works in close partnership with Nefesh b'Nefesh.

Step 1: Fill out the online application. Based on your responses, you will be notified as to what documents you will need to supply. Additional documents may be requested at any stage in the process depending on your exact personal circumstances.

Step 2: Upload your documents or send them to our office.
Step 3: Arrange an Aliyah eligibility interview with your local Jewish Agency for Israel Shaliach (if you plan to visit Israel prior to your Aliyah, this can also be arranged in Jerusalem). At the interview our staff will explain the Aliyah benefits, recommend absorption programs, give general advice and check your original documents. 
Step 4: Receive notification of eligibility for Aliyah. If you have requested to sign up for a Jewish Agency absorption program you will be notified regarding acceptance.
Step 5: The Jewish Agency will coordinate the application for an Aliyah visa (if you are already an Israeli citizen this step is not necessary).
Step 6: Book your Aliyah flight through Nefesh B'Nefesh.
