Israel has one of the most advanced passport systems in the world. It includes features such as RFID chips embedded in the page that allow for quick identification and authentication of documents. In addition, all pages have a watermark that contains data about the document's origin and authenticity. Finally, each page has an antenna that allows government agencies to contact the Ministry of Interior directly if questions arise about the authenticity of the document.

The Israeli passport application process is straightforward and efficient. In fact, it is believed to be one of the fastest passport applications in the world. All you need is an ID card or birth certificate to apply for an Israeli passport. If your ID card is lost or damaged, you can still apply for a new one.

In addition, under the Law of Return (an article in Israel's constitution), any Jewish person who is a citizen of another country can come to Israel and be granted citizenship. In practice, this means that almost all Jews worldwide have been granted Israeli citizenship with only a few exceptions (such as South Africa during its apartheid era).

Israel has signed treaties with more than 100 countries granting them visa-free access for their citizens. However, some countries may still require Israeli citizens to apply for a visa if they intend to travel to those countries. Some countries may also deny Israeli citizens entry if the government of Israel considers them to be threats to national security.

Currently, only five countries refuse to grant visas to Israeli citizens: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, and Lebanon. However, since Israel holds dual citizenship, most Israelis are actually eligible for a free visa to these countries if they want to visit them.

In fact, the majority of Israelis travel abroad at least once in their lives.
