As threat of Russian invasion grows; the Israeli embassy in the Ukraine will be reinforced to boost consular services for Israelis wishing to leave country. It is not clear yet if work visas will be processed in the coming days, as efforts will be diverted to serve Israeli nationals needing consular services.
Israel has warned citizens to consider leaving the country, but has not yet instructed them to depart immediately as other nations, including the US, have done.
Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry has said it has begun working in an emergency capacity. Though embassy staff’s families and diplomats’ families are being evacuated for their safety, the embassy itself will continue to operate and will even be reinforced with additional staff from Israel to boost consular services for Israelis wishing to leave the country.
