During the first few months following aliyah, it is advisable to take the following additional steps:
Obtain an income tax exemption from the Income Tax Department (Mas Hachnasa), if you have already started working.
Apply for a municipal tax (arnona) discount at the offices of your local municipal authority.
Convert your foreign driver’s license to an Israeli license through the Licensing Bureau (Misrad HaRishui).
Claim the lift (“container”) you sent from your country of origin, and store your shipments.
