Experts Travelling to Israel Now Need Work Permits

The law also applies to anyone coming to Israel for lecturing, training, supervising or small service work


New visa regulations in Israel make work visas mandatory for all individuals travelling to the country to fulfill a task that requires a certain skill reports Haaretz.

The law targets experts that been invited by Israeli businesses for a short period of time to provide a certain skill set such as training, consulting, installations and repair work.  This will also include people arriving from countries with visa-waivers.

Experts coming from abroad will not only require a B/1 work visa but also a work permit, before they enter the country.

Prior to the law, businessmen coming only for a short trip could enter on a tourist visa.

In Thailand, the immigration law is such that a business trip to the country, no matter how short, requires a work permit. However, in cases of “urgent and necessary work”, foreigners can notify the Department of Employment instead of getting a work visa. It is punishable by law to be caught working in Thailand without a work permit.
