The Israeli foreign worker salary for expert workers must be twice the average salary in Israel.

The reason for this is to discourage companies from seeking to bring in foreign workers as opposed to hiring local Israelis. However, if the company thinks they need this foreign worker, they must commit to paying them a minimum rate of whatever twice the average salary is at the time they apply.

Effective January 1, 2021, the minimum monthly salary for foreign experts in Israel has remained the same as in 2020, ILS 20,856.
