Israeli Work Visa for a Lecturer, Researcher, or Professor

We had a pleasure of working with Irena Rosenberg who assisted in getting our two U.S. born children registered in Israel and supported visa process for my wife in 2021. During the pandemic, my wife and I decided to move to Israel where I am originally from after living in the U.S. for over 20 years, but we had no idea how to go about securing visas before and after arriving in Israel. Irena is knowledgeable, reliable and competent lawyer who always had answers to all our questions which made us feel confident that everything would be fine with her assistance. We are now happily living in Israel and are so grateful to have Irena who is a genuinely nice person as our lawyer.

This article discusses how to obtain an Israeli work visa for a lecturer, researcher, or professor, namely an individual in an institution of higher learning in Israel.

Israeli Work Visa for a Lecturer, Researcher, or Professor

Israel is willing to extend foreign expert visas to lecturers, researchers, or professors in the event that someone of the comparable skill level is not available for employ in Israel.  The reason Israel limits foreign expert visas is to keep as many Israeli jobs for Israelis as possible.  However, in the event that someone with specialized knowledge is not easily available in the Israeli labor force, foreign expert visas can be issued.   An Israeli institute of higher education is one that is recognized by the Board of Higher Education Law or an institution that awards degrees according to the same law.  In order to apply for this specific foreign expert work visa, the Israeli Board of Higher Education must provide confirmation that the applying institute meets the criteria to be considered an institute of higher education.  Any foreign expert work visa that is granted will be issued for a maximum of two years at a time.

If you would like to see a list of required documents for the application procedure, see our article on  the B/1 Israeli expert visa.
