Departing WIS

We hope you enjoyed your stay in the housing facilities of the Weizmann Institute of Science. Read through the information below to prepare for your departure from WIS Housing and Israel.


You can arrange Security Clearance for Ben Gurion Airport.  Please download the relevant form below, complete it in FULL, in Word (not handwritten) and present it to your department secretary who will arrange this for you.  This clearance will shorten the security checks which you will need to go through at the airport. 

For all departing fellows, we will conduct a standard inspection of your apartment, to confirm that it is being left in good order.  This is part of your housing agreement and takes place normally one working day prior to your departure.  This will be scheduled by the Housing Office once you confirm your departure date.

In preparation for this inspection, we expect the following:

  • Please remove all food items from the apartment (give to neighbours, or dry goods can be donated to our office).
  • Throw any rubbish into to the main bins. We have recycling bins in addition to regular rubbish bins.
  • Fully clean all kitchen applicances.
  • The apartment should be cleaned in full - floors, toilet, shower, etc.

Once the inspection has taken place:

  • Please put all sets of apartment keys, employee cards (entrance card to the Institute) and your remote control for the parking lot (if received), in the small envelope designated for this purpose, and leave it, upon your departure, at the main gate of the Institute, or if you are departing before 4pm Sun - Thurs., drop it into the Visiting Scientists Office.

We did our utmost to provide you with a comfortable and clean apartment and would appreciate your leaving it so for the next tenants.

We wish you safe onward travels and hope to see you again in the future!
