Israel travel and mobility update provided
In light of the ongoing situation in Israel, the immigration authorities are operating with limited personnel and capacity, including the Work Permit unit and the visa department. Several branch offices of the Ministry of Interior are closed temporarily while others are open for limited hours. The Ministry is publishing a list daily of open branches and hours of operation. As a result, the Israeli Population and Immigration Authority (PIBA) announced on 8 October 2023 that all valid work visas and permits (held by individuals who are currently present in Israel) that are set to expire before 9 November 2023 are being automatically extended until 9 November 2023.
