The Knesset passed the first reading of a bill that will formally allow Israel to recognize foreign certifications of physical and speech & language therapists.

Introduced by Likud Beytenu Knesset member Shimon Ohayon, the law is intended to smooth the way for professionals in the field who come to Israel as new immigrants making aliyah with years of experience, but difficulty finding jobs.

The employment situation in Israel is complicated by a language barrier for professionals from abroad.

The issue is further exacerbated by the difficulties encountered in transferring one’s credentials; and the problem sometimes proves insurmountable, depending on the nation of origin, the school, level of education and year of graduation.
