Bank Account

When you arrive to Israel you will need to open up a bank account in order to recieve a salary from the IDF.  Israeli Banks require two forms of picture ID's to open up an account. For example a Passport and Driving License. It is advised to open an account at a bank near where you will be living. Once you are a soldier the banks will give you a soldiers account which means you will not pay for transaction fees. Some banks will allow you to receive the benefits of a soldiers account even before you enlist.

Majority of the Banks in Israel are closed on Fridays. However there are some that are open. Many soldiers prefer using banks that are open on Fridays since they are often released early Friday morning and can then take care of issues at the bank.

If you need help opening up an account or have any questions please contact us and we will assit you.
