New Immigrants

A new immigrant is entitled to a discount for 12 months out of his first 24 months in Israel, starting from the day of registration at the Census Registration as a new immigrant according to the Law of Return, 5710-1950. This discount is at a rate of 90% for 100 sq m of the area of the apartment. Every meter above 100 sq m is charged at the full rate.

For the attention of those requesting a discount:

  1. An immigrant registered on his immigrant's certificate as ''not an immigrant according to the Law of Return'' is not entitled to a municipal tax discount.
  2. A new immigrant who lived in an Ulpan/absorption center must submit confirmation of this in order to prove that he/she did not use his/her eligibility for a discount.
  3. A new immigrant who lived in another city must submit confirmation of partial use or no use of the discount in the city of his/her previous residence.
  4. You must register at the Ministry of Interior as a resident of Jerusalem.
  5. You must present an Immigrant's Certificate in order to have it signed.
  6. If the municipal tax bill does not appear in the name of the person requesting a discount, you must submit a rent/purchase agreement in order to transfer the municipal tax bill to the name of the person requesting a discount.
  7. Indicate the number of flatmates in the apartment (if any). If the immigrant lives with additional families, the discount will be awarded for his relative part.
  8. The Municipality reserves the right to verify details recorded in the form.

Required Certificates:

  1. New Immigrant's
  2. Confirmation of residence in an absorption center and/or confirmation from the local authority, where you lived until now, that you did not receive a new immigrant's discount.
