According to the Israeli immigration regulation, the Israeli Ministry of Interior and the work permit unit, allows corporations and companies to issue a work permits and work visas for their experts employees for short time periods of up to 90 days in a calendar year. The procedure of issuing this visa is similar to those of other work visas such as 12-month work visa for Academic or Nonacademic work permit and visa; however, the waiting period is slightly shorter.
This work permit & visa is intended for companies and corporations in need of foreign national experts for relatively-short time periods. This visa can be renewed or extended only by providing the Ministry with a very persuasive argument.
Another significant distinction between 12-month work visa and 90 days work visa is that, in the case of a 12-month work visa, the employer must pay the foreign expert a salary of at least twice as much as the average market wage (NIS 20,278 as for 2019), whilst in the case of employment under a short-term visa, there is no such demand.
Nonetheless, and for the sake of successfully applying customized solutions to specific cases, it is recommended to seek individual consultation.
We have been working with Adv. Yiftach Hanan & Co. for a period in the field of issuing work licenses to foreign experts in Israel.
From the first moment we approached Attorney Yiftan Hanan, we realized that we are in a different place, service consciousness, professionalism, availability and prompt and efficient response to any problem, issuing work permits on tight deadlines and all for the benefit of the project.
Real pros, well done
