no problem if you are talking about having gotten the standard tourist visa I think its a B2, the only problem you may run into is when checking into a hotel or renting a car, since that Visa is what IDs you as being a tourist and in turn means not having to pay the 18% VAT

every car rental and hotel checkin my PP and Visa slip were copied and kept by the hotel/car rental

How misspelled is it?
Most people will not even notice if only a letter or 2 are different.

Yes, that's the visa. That's a relief. My wife has hers which will hopefully serve hotel purposes...

And just to further clarify, the slip isn't the visa, it's the proof of entry. Everything is computerized, so you'll be fine on departure.

Yes, your wife will need to be the one who purchase anything that is eligible for a 17% ( not 18%) VAT refund. This is only from approved stores. She needs to check into hotels. If you are renting a car and both planning on driving, it will be a problem, because if a driver can't prove they are a tourist, than the rental agency is supposed to charge you VAT.

There is another area where you can have a problem. If you are planning to visit any area in PA sections ( Palestinian Authority) then you need the blue card to prove you are allowed in Israel. These areas include Bethlehem, a place frequented by tourists. It can be a problem without it.

There is a way of replacing it at the Ministry of Interior, but depending on your plans, ti may not be worth it.
