You are here


The Israeli government's strict security measures are implemented to guard public places.  Be prepared that your bag may be searched before entering a shopping mall, that it will pass through a metal detector at train stations and that you will see armed guards outside of coffee shops and restaurants.  This is part of normal life in Israel and reassures you that the government takes security very seriously.

We always recommend that international guests register with their embassies here in Israel and take note of their travel advice.

We are happy to answer any questions that you may have regarding your security in Israel and at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

If you are planning to travel within Israel, the Visiting Scientists office is happy to advise and recommend tour operators, private guides or routes which you can explore by yourself.

Further, on the campus, the security team is available 24/7 and can be reached on x2999 (+972 8934 2999).
