According to the 2023 Henley Passport Index report, which ranks the strength of passports across multiple factors, primarily focusing on visa-free travel around the world. Israeli passports ranked 25th in the world.
Israeli passport holders can travel to 159 countries without a visa. The visa-free regime means that there is no need to organize an application process before traveling between countries. However, some countries require an Israeli passport, while others require a visa-on-arrival or e-visa application prior to arrival.
Israeli passport holders can travel to many countries without the hassle of obtaining a visa, such as most European countries, both inside and outside the European Union, and most of Latin America and the Caribbean.
In Canada, Israeli passports will require an e-Visa, as will Sri Lanka, a popular destination for travelers from Israel. The Russian Federation does not currently require a visa, although this may change due to ongoing global tensions. One of the few countries in the Middle East that allows visa-free travel for Israelis is the United Arab Emirates thanks to the 2020 Abraham Accords.
