When you arrive to Israel by ship they will stamp a card that you will carry with you along with your passport while in port and then you will turn it back in when you return to the ship for the final time. Everyone will be given the card so you do not have to ask for it.Will the more liberal countries Malaysia & Indonesia let you in with an Israeli visa or stamp?
As mentioned by cruisemom the officials from Israel will meet with each passenger (they will also meet with each cruise member). They will either do this a day or so before you reach the port of the day you arrive. It just depends on the logistics.Keith
Also, if our passport needs a visa for Israel & we don't have it, will the cruiseline allow us to board a cruise stopping at Eilat, Israel? Can we stay onboard the ship without an Israeli visa?
