The Knesset's Interior Committee approved the regulations for a work permit for Israeli investors in the US According to the agreement, Israelis and US residents will be able to invest in each other's country and receive a work permit on an investment basis only.

The new condition is mainly contingent upon an application proving that it provides the business with a sufficient amount of capital to secure the financing of its employment during the construction period, and that the business will create jobs for American citizens.

Advocate Zvi Ken-Tor explained that the promotion of the covenant was coordinated with the Population Authority, which supported and assisted all along the way.In order to promote the process, AIPAC was also mobilized to submit a short and specific law authorizing the granting of a visa to Israeli citizens.
