The Israeli government has automatically extended tourist visas of Ukrainian nationals currently in Israel.

Key Points:

  • Ukrainian nationals currently in Israel on tourist visas have received an automatic visa extension until June 30.
  • Ukrainian nationals who arrived in Israel before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine are allowed to work while they are in Israel under the automatic extension.

Additional Information: Travelers are no longer required to take pre-departure COVID-19 tests, post-arrival COVID-19 tests or quarantine upon arrival.

BAL Analysis: Israeli authorities have automatically extended the validity of tourist visas for Ukrainian nationals in light of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. Employers and employees are reminded that actions taken as a result of the invasion of Ukraine may change with little or no notice.
