Israeli Stamp

Do I have to worry about having an Israeli Stamp in my passport when I go to Pakistan?

Does Pakistan mind if I have an Israeli stamp in my passport? If they do, can I get a new passport in Amman before I fly out of Jordan to Karachi? Reply to this

Hello David 😊

If you dont yet have your Israeli stamp you can ask them not to put it on your passport pages but give it separately. I heard they will do that.
I am not sure if the Pakistani immigration officially turn down people with Israeli stamps. I have never heard of it happening. What they do unofficially may be another thing.

Hopefully somebody with personal experience of entering Pakistan with an Israeli stamp on their passport will reply to this thread.

Mel is right. You can request a different stamp in Israel. At the airport in Tel Aviv they'll give you a separate card with the stamp in it. You must keep it with your passport and then you can get rid of it when you leave Israel.
Keep in mind that if you leave Israel by land and go to Jordan for example, then the Jordanian border stamp in your passport will reflect that you entered by land at that point which could only mean that you had been in Israel prior.
I find that it's worse if you go to Israel and they see that you have been in a country they think is not friendly to them. I got some less-than-friendly treatment when I arrived in Tel Aviv after being in Syria a few days earlier.

Hope this helps.
