Latest Notice to Irish Citizens
As of 1 November 2023, the Department of Foreign Affairs strongly advises against all travel to Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt).
The ongoing attacks pose a significant security risk and a State of Emergency is in place.
We strongly advise Irish citizens already in Israel to avoid all travel to areas surrounding the Gaza Strip, within 500m of the border with Syria (the ‘Alpha Line’) and within 5km of the border with Lebanon, including recently evacuated communities in northern Israel, due to ongoing military operations. For citizens already in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) please contact the Representative Office in Ramallah should you require advice on crossings by emailing RORamallah@dfa.ie.
For the latest updates please follow the X (formerly Twitter) accounts of the Irish Embassy in Tel Aviv here and our Representative Office in Ramallah here. For urgent consular assistance please contact: +972 3696 4166 or +353 1408 2000.
Our latest Travel Advice is available here. Please ensure you have registered with the Embassy here. If you have previously registered and have now left Israel or the oPt, please contact us to let us know.
