Israel Doesn't Stamp Passports

43 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 

 

So as I'm compiling proof of having met in person in the last two years I see that a lot of others on here list passport stamps as proof. Here's my problem, my fiancé lives in Israel and they don't stamp passports there. They gave me a small pice of paper "visa" that I used to exit the airport. By chance I had saved one of these visa tickets, but I only have one out of the three (I've visited 3 times). 

 

I also didn't keep any of my boarding passes, and only have email copies of my receipts from when I purchased the tickets. Is this enough? I also have pictures of us together. Do you think I will get an RFE

Should be enough.  Hong Kong doesn't stamp either but my now wife had stamps when she returned to the Philippines.

You can't give what you don't have.  Itinerary is proof of purchase not proof of travel.  You should include it but it is not the best evidence 


YMMV

You need the registered booking flight which was issue by the airline on a computer to print it as for your evidence of visiting , you actually don't need the boarding pass.

Cool. Is that something I request from the airline? How do I get that?

When you booked a flight , the airlines will give you a booking flight sheet of paper which contains the flight information , time for your departure and arrival on it, including if that flight will make transit before arriving to your actual destination will all be included on that paper. The same sheet of paper you will use for the airlines to issue you a boarding pass for your flight.

Thanks! That's what I have now. Previously another member mentioned that an itinerary is not proof of travel, it's simply proof of purchase. Unfortunately, I only have that and the visa I received on my last trip to Israel.

But proof of booking is not proof of travel but merely proof of purchase

I'm just trying to help you out , but I saw that you need not that help but only trying to proof that you know it yourself.

Have a good day.

I'm sorry that you feel that way. I'm very new to this process and I appreciate the information you've given. I'm not sure why you feel I'm trying to proof something. I hope you have a good day too.

Do you have anything that has your name on it receipted in Israel?  Money exchange?  Hotel folio?  Anything?

I have the email receipt from the hotel I stayed at on my first visit. On my second and third visit I stayed with friends. Yesterday I found a bus receipt, but that doesn't have my name on it. I didn't think to keep any receipts. I never thought I'd be going through this process, so I just didn't prepare. And now it really scares me. Do you think I could use bank statements that show when I used my card in Israel? Would that help?

You only need to prove one meeting within the last two years.   

 

A bank statement might be helpful in conjunction with the itinerary to help bridge the gap if the dates line up and the information on the statement is obvious enough to show without a doubt it was Israel 

 

Adjudicators are trained skeptics.   In the game of chess, check isn't good enough.   Checkmate is what you want
