As reported by Chaim V’Chessed, a significant program is underway to streamline the aliya process for foreigners currently residing in Israel.
The Guided Aliya program operated by Nefesh B’Nefesh has been expanded and bolstered by additional staff. For those making aliya from within Israel, this method is by far the most logical choice. Applicants receive personalized service from native English-speakers who understand their backgrounds. Furthermore, nearly all arrangements are made remotely or in Nefesh B’Nefesh offices. Generally, only one trip to Misrad HaPnim is required to complete the process, and Nefesh B’Nefesh representatives even escort the applicants to that encounter as well.
As detailed previously, eligible applicants who apply for the Guided Aliyah program prior to Rosh Hashanah are eligible for substantial financial grants. These grants can potentially earn thousands of dollars for eligible families. Now, Chaim V’Chessed has learned that the deadline for applications will be extended until October 12, 2023.
In an additional development, new leniencies have been introduced for applicants who were born in Israel or who arrived in Israel prior to age 14. These applicants will be exempt from the requirement for an FBI background check, and their applications will be fast tracked.
For foreign residents in Israel, Nefesh B’Nefesh’s ‘Guided Aliyah’ program stands out as the most appealing pathway to easily obtain Israeli citizenship. Learn more about this program by clicking here, or by calling 073-730-3703.
