If you can read beyond the headlines and see past the politics, in Israel you will find a beautiful and beguiling nation quite unlike anywhere else on Earth.
Please follow advice from local authorities and stay informed of the security situation through the media and this travel advice.
There have been mass protests on the Gazan side of the Gaza/Israel border on a regular basis since 30 March.
Protests are expected to continue throughout May 2018.
There is a risk of increased tension at checkpoints in and around the West Bank and Gaza during this period.
There have been a number of violent incidents on public transport and near public transport lines in Jerusalem, including the Light Rail network. Due to a significant number of road traffic accidents involving taxis in the West Bank we advise you avoid using them where possible.
