Reliever Job: Why do you have to do it legally?
The iSavta Team | 12.11.2019
With the new regulation on Reliever jobs and the increase in demand for replacement Caregivers this month, there’s no doubt about opportunities in landing a job even if you have a “5 years visa restriction” on your shoulders.
The new law is practically favourable for those who are here in Israel between 51 months to 63 months. According to recent law changes, caregivers who are in Israel between 51 and 63 months cannot apply for special visa (humanitarian visa) and can only work as relievers for other caregivers on vacation, until they reach 63 months in Israel.
The reliever’s visa should be arranged by the agency of the employer, only if replacing a permanent caregiver who received a re-entry visa. The terms for receiving a registered reliever’s job (a B1 reliever’s visa) are:
- The minimum period of work as a reliever is 21 days, maximum is 90 days.
- The employer has a valid permit to employ a foreign caregiver.
- The relieving caregiver finished the last job within the past 90 days.
- The reliever is in Israel less than 63 months.
- The passport of the reliever is valid for 2 more years.
When the reliever reaches 63 months in Israel, she/he can apply for a special visa within 90 days from the last relieving job.
This is really good news.
Though, looking a reliever job is not that difficult during Christmas season, it seldom to have a reliever job which was processed legally. Most of the time, vacationing Caregivers are desperately looking for someone to temporarily replace them. They tend to make a deal with people who are staying illegally in Israel who’s also asking for a huge amount of money.
Caregiver between 4 years and 3 months to 5 years and 3 months in Israel:
Cannot apply for SV, must work as relievers.
If you are between 4 years and 3 months to 5 years and 3 months in Israel and want to apply for SV and want to work with elderly, you must stand in the restrictions. One of the restrictions is that it has not passed more than 90 days since you finished your last job (more restrictions are in the description downward).
In other words, you must work and registered in this period as relievers.
But what will happen to you after you work as a reliever? Is there any chance for you to have a B1 Visa and normally work as a Caregiver again? The answer is yes, as long as you go through the legal process.
There are hundreds of employers who are looking for relievers on the iSavta website right now. Most of them are certainly looking for someone that they could have legally. But, if you are going to make a deal with other Caregivers and take the job without going through the whole legal process, then your chances of having an extended visa will be put at risk.
