30 Days Work Authorization (SEA) Program Is Now Available for Up to 45 Days

30 Days Work Authorization (SEA) Program Is Now Available for Up to 45 Days

January 7, 2016

The Work Permit Unit and the Ministry of Interior (hereinafter "MOI") have announced a change of the program effective today. Temporary trial period regulations for the program have been published and will remain valid until 31 July 2016. The updated program will enable travel to Israel for short work assignments for up to 45 days (The 30 days program is abolished).

According to the updated regulations, most requirements of the 30 days SEA program will remain unchanged. However, the most significant change is a new affidavit for up to 45 days work, to be signed by the company. Government fees will still apply, to be calculated by the actual length of the assignment.

The program allows for work activities in Israel for up to 45 days total in a calendar year. A separate application must be submitted prior to each entry, as well as in the case of changing travel dates. There will be no change in processing time (6-10 working days).

The 45 days SEA visa applies only to nationals of countries that are part of the visitor visa waiver program. Nationals of India, China and Turkey and other countries, who are required to obtain visitor visas at the Israeli consulate prior to entry, cannot apply for work authorization under the SEA program.
