Many government offices and public entities accept clients by appointment only. Here is a guide to using MyVisit, the website that enables you to create appointments for all government offices easily and efficiently.

*Note that certain types of appointments for various government offices cannot be made through MyVisit, rather need to be made by email or through a designated form. Those are illustrated below as well

In Israel appointments are scheduled online via the MyVisit website or app (Android , IOS).

The Ministries that you can schedule appointments for on MyVisit include:

  • Misrad Haklita (Ministry of Aliyah and Integration)
  • Misrad Hapnim (The Ministry of Interior โ€“ ืจืฉื•ืช ื”ืื•ื›ืœื•ืกื™ืŸ ื•ื”ื”ื’ื™ืจื” ย The Population and Immigration Authority)
  • The Ministry of Transportation
  • The Israel Postal service
  • Rental Assistance companies
  • Rabbinical Courts
  • Water Companies
  • Municipalities and many more

Some of the offices that offer scheduling online appointment may not require appointments at this time, although having an appointment will shorten your wait upon arrival as those with appointments are serviced before walk-ins.

For the purpose of this guide we have chosen to walk you through scheduling appointments with 4 government offices.

The system is similar for all offices. Follow the steps illustrated below and remember we are happy to walk you through this process if you are unable to complete it on your own.
