When Can I Visit My Family Once I Draft?
Once you draft, you are guaranteed a 30-day vacation abroad from the army once per full year of service, only beginning after the eighth month of service. One of these 30-day trips will be paid for in full, however if you would like to return to visit family more than once you will be required to pay for the flight. Your parents are allowed to visit you in Israel and you will be granted 4 days off every 6 months. Click here for more detailed information on your rights as a lone soldier.
