Request to issue a Rav Kav

The issues of a personal Rav Kav is free of charge.

The card is personal and cannot be used by others. However, it is possible to purchase an anonymous or semi-anonymous Rav Kav for 5 NIS at a train station.

When choosing one of these possibilities it will not be possible to restore the travel ticket, or the sum deposited on it if it is lost or stolen.

Passengers entitled to a discount (students, youth, senior citizens, disabled and blind passengers) can only have a Rav Kav issued or update their Rav Kav profile using a Service Station and must produce an identifying document (Identity card, driving license, passport or other relevant documents that proof their eligibility). Issuing a Rav Kav is free of charge.

If you have any questions, please contact our Custome Service Center on * 5770​​​
