The paper focuses on the voyage to Palestine in the 1920s and examines it as a migration experience, different from the ideologically charged term Aliya. It looks at the arrangements and bureaucracy involved, from the stage of waiting in the European ports in Vienna and Trieste, until disembarking in Jaffa or Haifa. The article deals with the highly impressive bureaucracy of the Palestine Offices established by the Zionist Organization after World War I, which enabled Jews to immigrate. Alroey examines immigration from below–from the point of view of ordinary immigrants, for example their life on board the ship.
