TAU Finance Conference - Useful Information

Please make sure your passport is valid for at least six months after you plan to leave Israel. Also, if you are holding a passport other than Israeli or US, please check with the Israeli consulate in your area whether you need a visa to enter Israel. Please print this invitation letter and carry it with you for your travel. You could be asked to present it to the immigration officer.


You will arrive to the Ben Gurion International Airport located about 25 km east of Tel Aviv. While Israel is known for its strict security and travel safety checks, these security measures are similar to those currently practiced in the US. Please be prepared to answer questions regarding the reason for your visit, the length of your visit and your place of stay.


 The local currency is the "New Israeli Shekel" or NIS. A taxi from the airport to the center of Tel Aviv will cost approx. 150-170 NIS. We suggest that you avoid transacting with foreign currency. We recommend that you either bring about 500 NIS with you or use the ATM machine at the airport to withdraw cash (a cash machine located opposite customs).
