Procedures Relative to Foreign Investment

Freedom of Establishment
There are no restrictions on foreign investments except for sectors considered vital for national security, such as the defence and telecommunications sectors.
Acquisition of Holdings
Rules regarding mergers and acquisitions or takeovers are the same as for Israelis.
Obligation to Declare
Foreign investors are not under any obligation to receive prior authorisation from the Government, except for regulated industries (such as banking) or to register, except if the company wants to benefit from certain advantages. Investments in certain sectors may require a government license.
Competent Organisation For the Declaration
Invest in Israel
The Authority for Investments and Development of the Industry and Economy
Requests For Specific Authorisations
In October 2019, the Israeli government established a centralized investment screening mechanism for certain inbound foreign investments. Such mechanism applies to investments in regulated industries (like banking and insurance), which have to obtain approval by the relevant regulator.
