Questions About Travel and Israel
Flights are not covered by the local expense fee. This is a separate expense to be covered by the participant or his/her sponsor. Flights must be independently booked by the participant.
Israel has one international airport, named after the country's first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion. Ben-Gurion International Airport is situated near Israel’s financial capital, Tel Aviv, and is sometimes also referred to as the Tel Aviv airport (TLV).
Galilee International Management Institute is responsible for obtaining the entry visa to Israel for its students. After being accepted by our Admissions Committee and completing all registration procedures, including payment of the local expense fee, the Israeli Ministry of Interior will authorise the participant’s entry to Israel. The participant will receive a document stating his eligibility for a visa.
As some countries have an Israeli embassy and others do not, the participant will receive specific instructions from our Registrar’s Office on where to proceed with this document in order to receive the visa stamp in his/her passport.
The medical insurance provided by Galilee Institute covers general health ailments that occur during your stay with us. It includes emergency treatment and hospitalisation, if required. It does not cover preexisting health problems including side effects of HIV/AIDS and HIV/AIDS medication or pregnancy-related care. Dental care is not covered, except for minor first-aid treatments. All other dental procedures must be paid for by the participant.
While the news media often portray conflict and violence in Israel, it is considered a safe country to travel to. During politically “hot” times in the country, there are specific areas which we would not advise visiting. Those areas are distant from Galilee Institute’s campus and there are never study tours to any sites where the participants’ safety and security cannot be guaranteed.
If you would like to speak personally to one of our alumni about their experience in Israel, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to get you in touch. You are also welcome to review the lists of our graduates and contact one from your home country independently.
During the weekends, you will be taken on trips to several of Israel's most important religious and historical sites

It does not. The local expenses and the cost of the flight ticket are not covered by the tuition scholarship. These expenses must be covered by the participant or his/her sponsor.
Galilee International Management Institute is unable to offer its candidates a full scholarship.
The local expense fee is usually sponsored by the participant’s employer or by an international or national organisation that the participant turned to independently to request sponsorship.
In double occupancy accommodation, two participants share a room. In single occupancy accommodation, one participant has a room to him/herself. Single occupancy accommodation is the more expensive option.
