Passports & Visas
travel to israel
Please note that for travel to Israel, Egypt and Jordon a full ten year passport is required for all British, EU and EEA members with at least six months validity beyond your due return date. A visa is required for travel to Egypt and Jordon for all British, EU and EEA members – these can be obtained on arrival. However, for passengers entering Jordon via the Allenby Bridge border, visas must be arranged prior to your departure from the U.K. A visa is not generally required for Israel. However, your own particular circumstances (which may not be evident to us from your booking) may be that a visa is required for you or another member of your party.
British passport holders require a visa to visit all parts of Egypt except the Gulf coast of Sinai for stays less than 15 nights. Visitors to the Golf area wishing to stay 15 nights or more, or those wishing to visit other parts of Egypt including Cairo and Ras Mohammed, must obtain a visa.
A visa is not required for those staying and visiting Aqaba only and arriving via the Arava Border.
We would strongly urge you, therefore, to contact the relevant embassy to obtain the most up to date information before making your booking with us.

The name on the passport must match the name on the ticket, otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid.
All children who are not already included on a valid British passport will need to hold their own passport if they are to travel abroad. Children who were included on a passport before October 5, 1998, may continue to travel with the passport holder until: the child reaches the age of 16; or the passport on which the child is included is replaced or an amendment results in the issue of a new passport.
If you are 16 or over and haven’t yet got a passport, our recommendation is that you should apply for one at least six weeks before your holiday. The UK Passport service has to confirm your identity before issuing your first passport and from October 2006 will ask you to attend an interview in order to do this.
