Global Strike of Israeli Consular Staff

November 5, 2019 | Israel

The employees of all Israeli consulates globally have declared a strike. The duration of the strike is unknown.

For the duration of the strike, the consulates will provide no services, which will delay the processing of visa applications. 

The strike is due to a long-standing disagreement between the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs related to the taxation and compensation of consular employees.
