March 23, 2022 1688 Time to read: 3 min.

Holders of Jewish roots have the right to obtain Israeli citizenship, which has many advantages. So, the main advantage of Israeli citizenship is the freedom to travel around the world without a visa. But there are certain nuances – 161 countries are open to the owners of Darkon, and 60 to citizens from Lesse Passe. Nonetheless, even this limited number of countries is quite enough for an excellent vacation and doing business. Below we have compiled lists of countries where you can go with this or that document.

    List of countries with visa-free travel for the Darkon in 2024


    So, you have started the repatriation process and are already thinking about what you will do and where you will go on vacation with the long-awaited Israeli document. But getting Darkon is not as easy as it seems. It is issued to repatriates living in Israel for a certain period of time.

    Darkon is an international passport, based on which a decision is made at the borders about a citizen’s access to the country. In 2024, with an Israeli passport, you can visit 161 countries without a visa (or a visa can be obtained in a simplified manner). Below is a list of these countries and conditions of stay.

    The main difference between Lesse Passe, aka Teudat Maavar, and Darkon are just restrictions. Some countries require the visa for Lesse Passe, but not for Darkon. Otherwise, this document is equivalent to Darkon.

    Since 2023, Darkon holders don’t need a visa to enter the U.S.

    There were a meeting between Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Netanyahu, which took place at the end of August 2021. During the meeting, the heads of state discussed the current agenda and further cooperation between states. And already on October 26 of the same year, US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorcas announced the consideration of 4 candidate countries to join the visa waiver program. In addition to Israel, the list also includes Cyprus, Bulgaria, Romania, and Croatia.

    You can now get visa-free access to the USA by Darkon, you just need to fill out the form online (Lesse Passe holders you still need to apply for a visa).
