Helping refugees

Israel does not have any general refugee assistance program, but there is a program to assist persons eligible to acquire Israeli citizenship (immigrants) under the Law of Return. Such a category of persons must apply to the Israeli consular service and the state agency NATIV to obtain a special visa. More details here.

Repatriates are eligible to receive an “absorption basket” – this is a financial assistance to repatriates, intended for settling at the initial stage upon arrival in Israel. The assistance is provided as a means of subsistence for the period of learning Hebrew at the Ulpan (for 6 months) and includes subsidies for rent for the first 12 months of living in Israel.

Citizens of Ukraine who have no grounds for repatriation are perceived by Israel as tourists.

This category of citizens can receive assistance through the RAZOM Israel helps Ukraine platform supported by the Embassy. Fill out the form on the site and volunteers will contact you!


Entry with animals. If you are going to transport a dog or cat to Israel, the animal must have an implanted ISO chip (#11784 and #11785). Read more at
