Please ensure that you complete the registration process ahead of time as it can take up to one month to receive the approval of the Israeli Interior Ministry. Once you receive the approval, you can then start planning your trip to Israel and book your flight.
In several countries, the KPC has local kibbutz representatives who can answer any question you may have, help you through the application process and provide you with the information you need in your own language. The local representatives can also handle group registrations and request placement in a specific kibbutz. A local extra fee may be charged for these services. The payment in the amount of 1300 NIS for the KPC Office will be collected in advance by the local representative and will not have to be paid in the office in Tel Aviv.
Registering through a representative grants you with 40$ discount.
Please be advised that due to the Covid-19 special regulations all arrivals in Israel have to be picked up from the airport directly into a 10-day quarantine period.
For this reason there are now additional costs added to the regular program fees:
Transportation from the Airport to the Kibbutz 300 NIS + 50 NIS a day x 10 days for Quarantine (including accommodation, food, laundry and WIFI) = total of 800 NIS.
(All the costs above are subsidized by the Kibbutzim and the program)
In South Korea, South Africa and India, the registration through the local representative is mandatory according to the requirements of the Israeli Interior Ministry.
the registration through the local agent is possible but not mandatory.
You can also apply directly through the KPC website.
