Parents of a soldier
For cases in which Israeli soldiers serve in the army and their foreign parents live abroad, the State of Israel has approved procedures that allow foreign parents to live with their children in Israel and provide their children direct support and assistance.
“The procedure for granting status to the parents of soldiers” is designed to provide status to the parents of a soldier who is an Israeli citizen.
If a soldier meets the criteria, his parents will be granted permission to enter Israel with a B2 visa for up to 3 months.
Upon the arrival of parents in Israel, an application for temporary status of A5 type is submitted for a one-year period, after which it can be renewed for a two-year period and the total period of stay in this status will be 4 years.
The residence permit is renewed every two years, in accordance with the application terms and the terms for consideration of the application. The Ministry of Internal Affairs will review the so-called “centre of life” of the soldier and his parents, will verify if the communication between the soldier and his parents is being maintained, as well as will carry out additional checks if needed.
After 4 years of A5 status, parents will receive permanent resident status, if they submit the application accordingly.
The procedure helps to alleviate the welfare of soldiers by providing an opportunity to receive support and assistance from their parents in Israel. Our firm helps soldiers’ parents apply for status in Israel and provides direct assistance at all stages of the application review process and, if necessary, resorts to the courts to review the decision taken by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
