(NEWS) Reform Aims To Attract Expats Back To Israel

"Interior Ministry program will allow children of Israelis living overseas to enroll in higher education studies in Israel without having to serve in IDF.

A series of reforms put forward by the Interior Ministry aims to induce Israelis living abroad to visit and study in Israel, in an effort to convince more expatriates to resettle in Israel.

The reforms are part of the 'Israel is home' program led by Interior Minister Eli Yishai and aimed at encouraging Jews and Israelis living abroad to make a permanent home for themselves in Israel. As part of the program, Jews eligible for Israeli citizenship will face less demanding terms in applying for permits to stay in Israel and will be entitled to better services in Israel."
