I am living in Eretz Yisrael and specifically interested in learning and/or working in Israel under an Israeli visa but don’t want to be a citizen until getting married.
I regret not figuring out how to get a visa (given I don’t have a Yeshivah there). Is there any way efficient way I can get a visa when things become open enough for new visas to be made?October 1, 2020 12:52 pm at 12:52 pm #1906265LefelSoicherParticipant
I’m living in Eretz Yisroel, and before corona started I began the A1 visa process. It’s simple: 1. Go to Misrad Hapnim with the following docs; passport, birth certificate, letter from a Rov in chutz laaretz where you grew up/lived affirming you’re jewish from birth (I called my Rov in America and he happily mailed it to me), or for gerei tzedek an official rabbinic document affirming that, and the last thing you need is an FBI affirmation that you don’t have a criminal record. Currently the latter is where I’m stuck, because nefesh bnefesh usualy gives the necessary fingerprinting needed for this with a fee of a few hundred shekel, and now cause of corona they’re only doing it for those making aliyah. For sample docs and more details you can visit chaim v’chesed’s website, which I referred to as well. If you find a solution about the fingerprinting issue please post it here, Thanks.October 2, 2020 10:33 am at 10:33 am #1906505KGNParticipant
The A1 visa seems good. The student visa would be good (as I am still single). Perhaps, when the lockdown gets less locked, I could try to at least get a student visa or travel permit. Though, the A1 seems like it’s worth it for the long-run.
I would consider going to an Israeli Embassy in America since I did meet someone who obtained an Israeli passport via it.
