Israel – New Guidelines for Hi-Tech Visas

Due to new guidelines by the Israeli Innovation Authority and the Israeli Central Statistics Office, only Israeli registered Hi-Tech companies can apply for a HIT visa for reduced processing time for their employees. Non-Israeli registered Hi-Tech companies as well as their local Israeli branches are not eligible to apply for the HIT visa.

Israeli registered Hi-Tech companies may request for a pre-ruling for company eligibility in such a case where the classification as a Hi-Tech company is not clear. If a negative pre ruling is received, the company may submit an appeal to the Israeli Innovation Authority.
