December 23, 2014

Termination of 30 Days Work Authorization (SEA) Pilot Program

Effective today, the Ministry of Interior has advised that it will no longer accept applications for 30 day work authorization (SEA) as part of its pilot program. The program was initiated for an indefinite trial period in order to examine  work authorization options for brief, urgent travel to Israel of up to 30 days in order to address instances ofnecessary urgent repairs and the like.

The Ministry of Interior announced its decision today following one year of the program’s existence. The Ministry will also no longer accept SEA applications and currently pending applications will not be processed.

The Ministry of Interior has advised that will begin to accept SEA applications once formal regulations concerning the program have been published. At this time, no exact date has been provided as to the new regulation’s publication, however Kan-Tor and Acco estimates that such regulations will be published in the near future.

Suggested Action – Employers are now required to submit applications for 3-Month Work Permits (STEP) for any pro-active assignment of less than 90 days.  The processing time frame is currently 1-2 months.
