About The Israel Visa Stamp

Whenever somebody mentions they are traveling to Israel somebody else
inevitably says, 'make sure you don't get your passport stamp' like you
have never heard this before and they belong to some important Middle East Think Tank. For those who have never said the sentence 'I am going to Israel', this is referring to how some countries like Syria won't let you into their country if you have an Israel stamp in your passport. So Israel will just stamp a piece of paper which they place inside your passport. This is all fine and good if you happen to be flying into the country but if you are crossing on land this advice means nothing. Although at the Egypt/Isreal border Israel will not stamp your passport the Egyptian border guard, could not care less. So inside your passport is a stamp that says a bunch of things in Arabic and Taba. As a result, any Syrian or Saudi who knows a little bit about geography will know that crossing from Taba means crossing into Israel. Although your passport will make it look like you left Egypt and vanished into international thin air. My advice, ask for as many Israeli border stamps as the border guards will dish out, then ask your country for a fresh passport when you travel to countries that are at war with Israel.

Hi Orientalist,

your comment is inaccurate. When you leave Taba (and I am writing from Taba right now, and going to Israel tomorrow), and go into Israel, or whenever you go into Israel for that matter, DO NOT get the Israeli stamp. Of course they can see that you left Taba by foot and went where ? Israel is the only option. However, this matter of not liking the Israeli visa is more of a point of principle: other middle-eastern countries do not like Israel and make it a point to refuse entry if they see an Israeli stamp. You do not leave Egypt and vanish into thin air. They know the geography, but they do not like the stamp. Look at it as a constant reminder for the Israeli custom officer that there are neighbours who do not like them. I cross the border often and they get annoyed when you ask them not to stamp your passport. Look at it that way.
