Israel – Short Employment Authorization Extended to 45 Days

What has changed

Effective immediately, Israel’s Short Employment Authorization (SEA) has been extended from thirty (30) days to forty-five (45) days. Previously the SEA allowed work in Israel for a maximum of thirty (30) days within a twelve (12) month period.

Who is affected?
What to expect

  • Employers sending foreign nationals to Israel for short-term work

The thirty (30) day Short Employment Authorization was introduced earlier this year, for citizens of countries with visa-free entry, as a short-term option with faster processing times and low government fees. The SEA will now allow citizens of visa-free eligible countries work authorization for up to forty-five (45) days within one (1) year. In addition, employers will be required to submit a signed affidavit.
