There are certain important factors that an employer must take into account when considering mobility requirements in this country.
 
• Some countries restrict entry and/or apply additional scrutiny to foreign nationals who traveled to Israel. Foreign nationals may elect to use a second passport to travel to Israel.
 
• Visa applicants from countries considered to be "Hostile States" by the Israeli government are subject to additional security screening and lengthy processing times.
 
• Applicants must be out of Israel during the processing of their work visas. Once they enter Israel, applicants must remain in Israel until they secure their multiple-entry visa in country (after starting work).
 
• Applications require an affidavit on the accounting/financial status of the host entity to confirm the host entity can fulfill ​financial obligations to the foreign national. The affidavit must be issued by a registered Israeli accountant, who signs the affidavit based only on sufficient documentary evidence on the company.
 
• Work permits can be issued up to a maximum of 63 consecutive months. This time frame varies and is calculated from the applicant's first entry into Israel as a work-authorized foreign national, even if the foreign national quickly exists and does not perform work activities in Israel for a long time. Extensions after this period require an extraordinary application.​​​
