This vlog is about my Palestine/Israel travel Series a lot of people have watched and appreciated and also I received a lot of comments and on Instagram they asked me many questions at the start, I replied to everyone individually but since most questions are similar so I thought to make a video and answer all of your questions and in this video, I explain how you can visit Israel on Pakistani, why you should visit or not how was my own personal experience how expensive it was and what you should expect there how locals behaved with me etc.
I try to complete it in less time and try to give you all the information that you should know The first question every Pakistani/Indian asked me that Pakistani Passport is not valid for Israel so how you can visit? yes Pakistani Passport is not valid for Israel but that doesn't mean you can't visit Israel you only need a Visa from Israelian authorities similarly some other countries like Malaysia someone wrote me their Passport is not valid either but you can still get the visa to visit To visit Palestine you need an Israelian visa because there is no other way to visit Palestine without Israelian visa so you have only one option to get Israel visa I'm not talking about Gaza which I didn't visit I visited only West Bank you have 3 options to get into Israel if you are in Europe or any other country where there is an Israel Embassy go there and apply there directly they will give you a form with some extra questionnaires and an interview where they will ask you similar questions which they asked me at immigration, I already upload a vlog The interviewer was very friendly to me it did take some time but his questions were simple to get to know me and to confirm that my only purpose is to visit and nothing else and no other motives so go there prepared and convince them what you are going to see and which places if you don't know which places you are going to visit where and why so have to convince them The visa they provide is on a Separate Page it is not stamped on your Passport even if you have a passport of some other country you can request them to not stamp entry and exit on your passport they will give you a small entrance and exit slip Hopefully, this is cleared now and confusion that you might face problems if you enter Pakistan again but if there is no stamp on the Passport then shouldn't be a problem Another option to apply for a visa is maybe in Turkey at the Israel embassy or in Jordan Israel does have an Embassy in Amman, Jordan and if you have a week extra to visit Jordan Jordan is also a beautiful country before you visit Jordan send an email to Israel Embassy in Jordan and request them for a Visa and try to get there most probably you will get it there or and if you don't have much time then go directly to the border with Jordan it might take some time at the border but if you fulfill their requirements you will get the visa it might take some time depending on how many people are there could take longer I met a Pakistani family from Faisalabad they got their visa at the border and it took them 3 hours to enter Israel they entered via Jordan and got the permission there and some friends those visited Israel told me it took them 7 hours as well so be prepared to wait there 6-7 hours It took us almost 5-6 hours at TLV Airport my friend visited 2 months before us and it took him 3 hours as it wasn't very crowded and 3rd option is to ask Palestine Embassy in Pakistan Pakistani Journalists get visa through them and get permission from Israel authorities I don't know the procedure but link to Palestine Embassy is in the description call them or email them and ask them about the procedure which might work for you as well Moreover, a lot of people asked me whether we should visit on Pakistani Passport It all depends on your Pakistan has no relations with Israel if something happens to you in Israel then Pakistani authorities might not help you and it is advised by the authorities to not visit so that is a problem and if you are willing to take the risk or not so I won't advise you anything about it decide it for yourself and think before taking the risk I don't think it is a big risk I personally would take that risk I believe Jerusalem is the most incredible city the historical also religious background you won't find it in some other place some people have messaged me and comment why you visit Israel, calling me Jew, RAW agent Ahmadiyya I already told in my first vlog that I'm Muslim so don't try to manipulate my words a lot of people outside Pakistan also watched it so what will they think about these people's comments so try to avoid telling others what to do My religion is my personal matter and I prefer to keep it that way it is none of your business if you don't want to visit just don't go but if someone wants to go don't interfere Jerusalem is a Holy city 3rd Holy city of Muslims why shouldn't Muslim visit this is an important city for all three religions everyone wants to live there, Jews, Muslims, Christians it is very important to all of them so many Prophets have walked there in those streets lived there so why we shouldn't visit it is also our first Qibla to pray in Al Aqsa Mosque it is such a wonderful feeling which I can't describe I'm not a good Muslim, neither a historian but I absolutely love this city so those who want to visit should visit and people asked me if it's worth visiting 100% you get the return of your efforts as you visit the city you will know how beautiful it is and you won't find such cities anywhere in the world thousands of people visit from all over the world and also Muslims from India, Indonesia etc.
and from other countries so decide it yourself if you want to visit or not and also people told me that Koshar is Halal Koshar is Halal and even stricter watch a video of Dr Zakar Naik link is in the description I watched it as I was a little doubtful myself I knew before that it is a similar method but I wasn't sure so I watched it and ate kosher foods and if you don't believe then it is up to you also people asked me what to expect there how friendly were locals to us the airport security was little strict some were friendly, some not that much the interviewer was very friendly but the security wanted to go through everything and I felt a bit frustrated that they didn't ask Europeans But the locals in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem very friendly and I didn't face any issue there no Racism everything is fine I was a little afraid to visit the area of Ultraorthodox but even there I didn't face any issue they were busy in their routine and walked passed but if you go to the area where it is not allowed to film and if you do then it might be a problem but I didn't record anything there so I was fine and respected their laws I stayed on the main road where it was allowed to film also, someone asked me how expensive is Israel? Israel is a very expensive country it might be a bit more expensive than Germany you should prepare for at least 50€ per day on a budget if you are staying in hostel 30€ almost we rented an apartment for 4 nights and paid almost 80€ for a night we were 2 so we paid 40€ each and for food I think around 20€ for a meal in Restaurant but deeper in Arab area non-touristy it might be a bit cheaper around 10€ Palestine was a little bit cheaper apart from Jerusalem Bethlehem and Hebron was cheaper compared to other places we visited and the rest of the places have similar prices I can't tell you in Pakistani Rs.
as it fluctuate also so count it yourself at the time you are watching but on budget 50€ a night Hopefully, it clarifies all of your questions and if you still have further questions send me a DM with your question and I will get back to you but please write your question and I don't share my WhatsApp etc.
