Multiple Stays Allowed for STEP Visa

August 28, 2019 | Israel

Multiple stays are now permitted under the STEP B-1 90-day work visa. Instead of a single stay of up to 90 days in a year, multiple stays not exceeding 90 cumulative days in a calendar year are now allowed. A separate STEP application is required for each stay.

The STEP visa is often used for those conducting technical or maintenance work, and also for Hi-Tech workers that do not meet the minimum salary requirement for the HIT (Hi-Tech) visa. A STEP visa can be obtained from an Israeli consulate in the foreign national’s country of residence.
