Short-Term Working Visa For Professional Experts
Short-term working visas are valid for 45 days. They grant a working permit for a professional expert according to the following eligibility criteria:
1. Regarded as a foreign expert (according to the criteria listed above).
2. Will be employed for a period of up to 45 days.
3. The employee's expertise is needed in order to perform a temporary task such as – consultations, inspections, equipment repairs, or any other temporary assignment that requires the foreign expert's special skill or expertise.
4. The worker has a passport from a country whose citizenship does not require a visa in order to enter Israel.
A request for a permit can be submitted by any company registered in Israel or by a company outside of Israel that grants power of attorney to a representative in Israel.
Generally, an employee granted a short-term working visa will not be permitted to be accompanied by family members during his stay in Israel. However, if the employee is arriving to be involved in a line of work that demands high academic studies and based on the length of his stay in Israel, the Immigration Authority may allow family members to accompany the employee, if requested.
