Destination Information for Israel

Israel is a religiously significant country which is small, yet extremely diverse. It sits on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, bordering Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. Jews, Christians and Muslims regard Israel as the Holy Land and there are many sacred sites here including Jerusalem, the Dome of the Rock Shrine and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. There are a number of distinct areas of Israel, each with its own characteristics and attractions. The most developed area is the Israeli Coastal Plain, which includes the financial and commercial hub of Tel Aviv. Inland and to the North are hills, mountains and highlands, while desert covers much of the South of the country, as well as the Dead Sea on the border with Jordan.

Most visitors to Israel come to explore the religious significance of the country, and to experience first-hand some of the biblical places and ancient cities which are so well renowned. Alongside this, however, Israel has some stunning landscapes and a rich culture which is well worth experiencing. Travel to Israel can be dangerous due to unrest and political difficulties, but for explorers prepared to look beyond this issue, there is much to see and do.

Non Vaccinated Diseases

Rift Valley fever

Rift Valley fever (RVF) is an acute, fever-causing viral disease that usually affects domesticated animals (such as cattle and sheep), but can also infect and cause illness in humans. The majority of human infections are caused by direct or indirect contact with the blood or organs of infected animals.

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is primarily spread to humans either by infected ticks or animal blood. Human-to-human transmission can also occur resulting from close contact with the blood, organs or other bodily fluids of an infected person.

West Nile virus

West Nile virus (WNV) is spread by mosquitoes in many countries. There are usually no symptoms, although some people develop mild flu-like symptoms, nausea and skin rash. The virus is not contagious and should get better without any treatment.

There is no cure for the disease. Treatment is focused on relieving the symptoms.
