Before entering the academic program, all students must clear their eligibility status for a student visa (type A2) or Israeli citizenship with the Israeli embassy or consulate in their country of origin. As of 2012, it’s no longer possible to enter Israel with a tourist visa and have it replaced with a student visa while in Israel.
