Next Steps & Tips

After you complete your Birthright Israel application, Shorashim application, your phone interview, & submit your refundable deposit once registration is open, you are eligible to receive a conditional acceptance via email. Please note that your trip acceptance will be conditional until you receive a second email from us confirming that you are approved for travel.

To increase your chances of being placed on one of your top trip choices, it is important to complete these steps in a timely fashion. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND completing the registration process as soon as possible.

You must upload a copy of your passport no later than two months before your departure. Please make sure that your passport is valid through March 2021, or six months after your return date. Once you have a valid passport, upload your passport image to your Birthright Israel application. Please note that you do not need to scan this; you can take a clear picture of your passport & upload this image. Another option is to use the Birthright Israel App to scan your passport.

You should not make travel plans or book any domestic travel until you have an unconditional confirmed spot on the program & have been given their exact flight details, including notification of the departure gateway.
