Israel’s Ministry of Interior allows corporations and companies to obtain work permits and work visas for their experts employees for short time periods of up to 90 days (B-1short-term visa). The procedure of issuing this visa is similar to those of other work visas; 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 arguments.
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 (19,604 NIS as for 2018), whilst in the case of employment under a short-term visa, there is no such need.
Nonetheless, and for the sake of successfully applying customized solutions to specific cases, it is recommended to seek individual consultation.
