Moving to Israel: Relocation Consultant, Planning & Assistance;
Have you decided on a relocation?
Your relocation period is over and it's time to go back to Israel?
The process of moving or returning back to Israel is a process of relocation and just as you planned the relocation process before leaving Israel, so it is advisable to plan the transition back to Israel in advance. Although you return to a familiar country and sometimes it seems that the return is easy and clear, but there are many aspects that may affect the acclimatization process in the country.
Proper relocation planning tailored to your needs will save you a lot of headache, time and money.
The sooner you plan your trip moving back to Israel, the more you will be able to make a decision at your own discretion and in accordance with your personal needs, so we recommend that you be accompanied by a professional who will reflect on the dilemmas, consequences for each step and the knowledge required to make decisions. .
Remember that the needs you had before you relocated probably changed, the neighborhood you lived in, the workplace, the environment, educational institutions and more. And even in the years when you were not there, Israel also changed a bit, so it is not certain that the neighborhood you lived in before the move will suit you today.

Will the agreement allow this?
The best advice from us is to consult with a travel manager during the draft stages of the agreement! Remember that after signing the agreement it will be difficult for you to change clauses that can help you a lot.

We have been relocating for almost two years and are considering severing residency.
What rights do we give up when severing residency?
Disconnection of residency is in fact a disconnection from all the authorities in Israel. On the one hand – you will not be liable to pay tax on your income, but on the other hand there are other consequences such as disconnection from your social rights that you have accumulated over the years, disconnection from Social Security and your HMO.
It is also important to think about preserving your rights during the severance and understand whether it is right for you to sever residency or whether you will want to wait with it in order to enjoy the rights you deserve.
We are preparing to return to Israel from the United States and now we are planning the date of delivery of the contents of our homes, we are wondering what is the right time to do so;
Upon departure? (Then be in Israel without the furniture for about two months)
Or living without furniture in the United States to receive it upon arrival in Israel?
We plan to emigrate to the sand together with our adolescent children. We told them we were only moving for a year to make it easier for them emotionally.
When will be the right time to tell them the truth?
The relocation from Israel to a new country involves a lot of fears, anxieties and uncertainty.
In children and certainly adolescents the social environment is a very central factor in life and therefore the fear of revealing your “secret” is justified.
But as far as your child is concerned, he understands that in a year he will return to Israel to his friends. He is already starting to count the days back and arranges with his friends for a reunion meeting next summer .. When he finds out the truth he may be very angry but mostly very disappointed. This can be difficult for him, which is why we always recommend telling the truth.
There are many ways to tell the truth, and the truth may be difficult, but remember that in the end your children will appreciate your sincerity and your transparency towards them.
We have been living in the United States for 12 years and are thinking of returning to Israel.

Does the state help find work for returning residents?
The concern in finding a job in Israel is indeed a justified concern.
There may be wage differences between what you used to earn and the salaries in Israel. Of course the cost of living also affects the salary and it is important to remember this.
