The Ukrainian diplomatic mission informed about a number of agreements reached at the meeting between Ukrainian Ambassador Yevhen Korniychuk and Israeli Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked on the status of Ukrainian citizens in this country during the war.

“We have received a positive response  from the Israeli side regarding the issuance of work permits for Ukrainians who arrived in Israel on the eve of the full-scale Russian invasion and were forced to stay, as well as those who entered Israel after February 23.”

In addition, these categories of citizens will be able to receive basic social insurance. Also, the Israeli Ministry of Internal Affairs agreed in principle to issue entry permits to families of Ukrainian citizens legally staying in Israel on work visas.

“The embassy no longer agrees with the principle of applying quotas and any other restrictions on the entry of Ukrainians, mostly women, and children, at the invitation of Israeli friends who are ready to provide Ukrainians with shelter from Russian aggression.”
