The official winner represented Israel at Miss Universe and the runner-ups for Miss World, Miss International and Miss Europe but sometimes the winner can also compete at other International pageants, such as in 1953, 1968, 1992, 1996-1998 at Miss World pageant while in 1961 and 1963 participate at Miss International pageant.

In 2001 Miss Israel became the national franchise holder for Miss Earth pageant until 2009 while in 2010 Miss Israel pageant did not send the candidate at Miss Earth pageant.
