There are temporary and permanent residents; it depends what you want.
Your decision will affect your future here.


In all cases, you need to go to your local branch of the Interior Ministry.

But--if I were you, I would go to the nearest branch office of the Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel, who will give you an idea of where you stand legally. Make an appointment first.

It might cost you a membership fee, but it will be worth it for you. (I am not connected to them in any way.)
Bring every document that you have regarding your times in Israel--visas, whatever.

You could also go to Nefesh B'Nefesh, ask them, and not pay a membership fee...

My experience has been that NBN, with all the good that it does, is much less experienced with people making aliya from Israel, or taking steps that are short of aliya.
Especially about advice concerning IDF service and tax breaks, which depend on factors such as how long he has been here, etc.

but--whatever, I don't have a dog in this particular hunt.

Yishai: Students Can Now Legally Work

Reported: 15:15 PM - Jan/16/11

Interior Minister Eli Yishai signed a change in law Sunday that will allow visitors to Israel on a student visa who are eligible for permanent resident status to seek work. Until now, all students were barred from working unless they got a special work permit.

The purpose of the change, Yishai said, was to encourage students to find work and begin building a career in Israel, in the hope that they will begin integrating into society and decide to stay. Yishai said that the move was one in a series to encourage such students to see Israel as their permanent home.
