IMPACT – HIGH
What is the change? Israeli authorities have clarified several rules for short-term employment authorization, or SEA, permits that allow visa-waived nationals to work for up to 45 days per year in Israel.
What does the change mean? The regulations clarify the types of work requiring work authorization and the waiting period before permit holders may reapply for a new SEA. Additionally, as of Jan. 1, the Israeli minimum monthly salary has been increased to 5,000 shekels (about US$1,290) from the previous 4,825 shekels, which SEA permit holders must now be paid.
BAL Analysis: The regulations are helpful clarifications to the use of short-term work authorization, particularly for foreign employees whose permit expired near the end of the year. Employers and individuals should verify that their activities conform to the appropriate type of visa and work authorization before travel.
