Israel is on the top of all possible ratings. The country has the world’s lowest death rate since it is a universally recognized leader in the field of medicine. Only advanced methods of treating complex diseases are used there. Owing to a solid financial support from the state, such a high level of medical care was achieved. No surprise that many people all over the world, not only Jews, want to migrate to Israel. In this post, we will discuss the process of migration and will tell you what’s necessary to move to this country.
Migration to Israel
There are several ways to get permanent residence in Israel. One of them is to follow the Law on Return. According to the act, all those who have Jewish belongings and are willing to reunite with Jewish people can claim the relocation. A good thing here is that the country compensates the cost of air tickets and provides a financial assistance upon your arrival. On the top of that, the state also provides an opportunity for a free course of Hebrew studies.
However, in order to take advantage of all the above preferences, an immigrant is to prove that there are Jewish relatives in his family tree. The repatriation procedure consists of several stages. Firstly, you must submit the documents proving your belonging to the Jewish people. Afterwards, you will be asked to fill out all necessary questionnaires and declarations.
Who Is Considered a Jew?
Currently, the country government has come to a single compromise definition that a Jew is born of a Jewish mother and did not convert to another religion as well as a person who accepted Judaism. In practice, it is often enough that one of the grandparents (on the maternal line) was a Jew. Other important factors that make up the basis for immigration are the following ones:
- The availability of a complete package of documents (birth certificates – personal as well as those of parents and grandparents).
- Lack of conviction.
- A clear and honest understanding and justification of the reasons for moving. These will be needed for the interview. Moreover, as experienced comrades say, it is quite acceptable to explain that you want to live in a developed country, honestly pay taxes, and receive high-quality public services in return.
What’s the Next Step?
The best way is to find a person who owns relevant information about your city or area. For the inhabitants of the capitals, it’s simple: you just need to call the consulate and receive first-hand instructions. For those who live in the regions, you can again call the consulate in the capital and ask when to go to the reception. Another way is to find a local Jewish community and ask for recommendations from them.
Interview With an Employee of the Consulate
After you submit documents, which can be taken for research or revised immediately, you will be asked a number of questions. During the interview, you will have to tell your biography and motives of receiving permanent residence. So get prepared for these questions and rest easy when talking with the interviewer.
It is where the joy starts. The host country pays for the flight, carries a significant amount of luggage, and gives lifting. Upon arrival, you will receive a package of necessary documents and instructions on what to do next in Israel. At this stage, there is nothing to worry about since the country will assure your comfortable relocation and adaptation.
