ISRAEL: Strike at Israeli Consulates Worldwide Ends

The strike unexpectedly declared last week at Israeli consulates worldwide ended on Sunday, 3 November 2019.

The strike temporarily halted visa processing through the consulates. Visa processing has now resumed, but applicants should expect slight delays at several consulates as officials process modest backlogs.

The strike was a result of an ongoing dispute between the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs over consular employees' compensations and taxation benefits.
