IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Israeli government offices will close April 22-30 for Passover, suspending visa and work permit processing during the holiday. Israeli consulates may also close or limit their hours.
What does the change mean? Applicants with time-sensitive applications should file them as soon as possible and anticipate delays when offices reopen.
Background: This year Passover begins at sundown on April 21 and will be officially observed until sundown April 30. The holiday commemorates the Jewish exodus from slavery in ancient Egypt. Jews around the world host Seders, serving foods that symbolize their journey and deliverance.
BAL Analysis: Companies and individuals applying for visas and work permits should factor the holiday break into their plans. Those applying abroad should contact the relevant Israeli consulate for individual holiday schedules.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice group and our network provider located in Israel. For additional information, please contact your BAL attorney.
