Effective immediately, employees of the consular sections within all Israeli missions worldwide have unexpectedly declared a strike. The duration of the strike has not been announced.
During the strike no consular services will be provided and immigration processes will therefore be delayed.
The strike is a result of a long dispute between the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs over the consular employee’s compensations and taxation benefits.
Employers who may be affected are encouraged to contact a Newland Chase immigration specialist for case-specific advice.
