Pre-Passover Travel Warnings – Office of the Prime Minister – State of Israel


As an annual public service, the National Security Council Counter-Terrorism Bureau calls the Israeli public's attention to its updated travel warnings and recommendations ahead of the upcoming Passover holiday (29.3-5.4.10).

In light of Iranian and Hezbollah threats, the NSCCTB would like to add the following:

Hezbollah has repeatedly accused Israel of being responsible for the death of Imad Mughniyeh; Iran has accused Israel of being responsible for the death of a nuclear expert in Tehran. Therefore, the NSCCTB underscores its warning regarding the possible abduction of, and/or attacks on, Israelis abroad, especially regarding businesspeople in Arab and/or Islamic countries. Israelis abroad are advised to:

1. Be especially alert and sensitive regarding unusual phenomena;
2. Absolutely avoid visiting/being present in Arab, Islamic and other countries about which there are a travel warning;
3. Reject tempting or unexpected offers and refuse to accept unexpected gifts and free offers from suspect or unknown sources;
4. Reject invitations to unexpected meetings, especially in remote locations and take care to arrive at meetings with reliable companions;
5. Avoid admitting suspect or unexpected visitors to hotel rooms or residences;
6. Avoid routine behavior during prolonged stays abroad (change hotels from time to time, alter regular travel routes, visit different restaurants, etc.).
