Hide / Show Abstract

Israel distinguishes two major categories of foreigners who may legally reside in Israel: immigrants with Jewish origin or ties, who may immigrate permanently to Israel under the Law of Return, as well as family members of nationals who receive legal status under the Entry into Israel Law, and foreign nationals who may enter Israel temporarily as tourists, students, foreign workers etc. At the end of 2014, the total population of foreign nationals in Israel was 226 300, down from 232 700 the year before. This group of foreign nationals is made up mostly of temporary workers, asylum seekers or overstaying tourists, as permanent migrants entering under the Law of Return are usually granted immediate citizenship upon arrival.
