Students attending Yeshiva Zeev Hatorah must have medical coverage. It could be a US policy covering students abroad (check with your provider), an Israeli Kupat Cholim policy, or any other student medical policies available on the market. Students will not be admitted to the Yeshiva without a policy number. Two popular medical providers for students learning in Israel are AIM and Harel. Meuchedet is about a dollar a day and is a basic insurance policy that will cover most medical costs.

Harel costs a little more, but offer more personal attention in providing you with the right doctors and treatments, and may also cover more of the medical costs.

Student visas may be arranged in your country of residence (check with your consulate), if not, the visa could be aquired in Israel.  Please bring a color photo of the applicant, and approximately $75.00 to cover associated costs.  Further instructions for aquiring visas in Israel will be provided by the Yeshiva upon arrival.
