For personal travel with us passport you don’t need anything.

If it’s for a business meeting do you know if that changes? Tried to navigate their website but was difficult to fully understand what was necessary

Based in Israel. Ask your BCG office in Israel if they can issue you a Mokdan letter. It speeds up the process at the airport and generally alleviates the need for a visa. Purpose of visit - “internal meeting”.

Israel has the most robust airport security in the world. It will take time

Just got back from Israel for work. No visa needed but good advice to notify the Dept of State that you will be there. Allow for 3 hours to go through security in the Israel airport coming back.

They also go through your bag pretty well, along with you needing to get out anything that has a battery or wires. Didn’t take me 3 hours because I only take carry-ons but if you are checking a bag it might.
