Aliyah Flight: Booking Requirements
1. OBTAINING APPROVAL & REQUESTING A FLIGHT
Once you have been approved for the Jewish Agency Aliyah Flight Benefit, Nefesh B’Nefesh will email you a link to a flight request form. After submitting your preferred flight, your request will be processed – pending availability and submission of required documentation. Only an email notification from the Nefesh B’Nefesh flights department stating you have been booked is confirmation you have seats on the flight. There is limited availability on all flights. Acceptance for NBN services/assistance and a picture of all Olim making Aliyah is required to be considered for a group or charter flight.
2. ALIYAH VISA
A valid Aliyah visa is required to book your ticket (unless you hold an Israeli Passport). Contact your Jewish Agency Shaliach for instructions on applying for the visa. It can take 2 weeks or more for the visa to be issued depending on the time of year and where you live. We recommend applying 1-2 months before your estimated departure.
3. TICKET PROCESSING FEE
Pay the $50.00 ticket processing fee per person utilizing the Aliyah Flight Benefit
4. ISRAEL ARRIVAL ADDRESS
In order for your ticket to be issued an Israel arrival address, that is not a hotel or hostel, is required. Generally this is where you are going from the airport. If you use the Aliyah Taxi voucher your taxi will be arranged from Ben Gurion Airport to this address.
5. DON’T DELAY
Work on obtaining Jewish Agency approval and then request your Aliyah flight as soon as possible, in order to have more flight options, especially during peak travel times.
