Misrad Hapnim Master Thread
« on: October 24, 2012, 08:47:58 PM »
Time to renew student visa...problem is that my US passport expires on 1/2014 and student visas are for three years...

apparently, on the nefesh b'nefesh website, it says your passport has to be valid for at least 6 months after the expiration of your visa...

is this the case?

must i renew my passport before going to misrad hapnim? will the us consulate allow me to renew it if there is 14 months left on it?

help...tia!

thing is you cant travel on a us passport once it only has 6 months left...and there is no point of getting a student visa if i will have to get a new one in 6 months...

this leads to the question...until i get my new us passport and subsequent student visa, i have no legal status in israel and bituach luemi will cancel my coverage...what do i do in the interim to prevent this if anything?

I'm not getting ya.
call/fax MH to make an appointment for a student visa. probably ull get apptmnt in a month.try to work out your appointment to us consulate aprox 2/3 weeks before the MH apptmnt so soon after your renewed passport ull get your visa.
bituach leumi doesn't cancel right away
#nobrainer

problem is that my student visa expires on 11/3/11 and i cant see getting a new us passport before than unless there is an expedited service...any advice?

BL has apparently linked systems and actually mailed a letter saying they will cancel it unless they hear from me that they have renewed the visa...?

dont you have to go down to get an appt these days?

You can either go to the consulate and ask for it to be expedited which is very easy these days or you can just wait and get a new one and then go to BL with the letter that they sent you about cancelling it, make a copy of the new passport + new student visa and they will reinstate it retro
it CAN be done!

sounds like i will get new us passport and ask them to rush it so i can go to misrad hapnim on 11/11 for visa in the new passport...does  one technically have health insurance coverage such as meuchedet if they do get bounced of BL for a few days until it's reinstated?

thanks! if BL cancels but not Muechedet, what is the ramification anyhow hospital coverage which you'd get back retroactively when you get back on BL?

as there is about 13 days in between my us passport appt and misrad hapnim appt, if i get it expedited all should work out...i emailed the consulate in advance with my request/story just to see if they could do anything...thanks everyone!
