“Annually, 11,000 illegal migrants from Ukraine come to Israel, and it makes 10% out of the total amount of tourists visiting Israel. In other words, 10% of the Ukrainian tourists, who come to Israel, are the illegal migrants,” Lion said.
Besides, Israeli Ambassador explained the increased number of the Ukrainian who got the refusal during the crossing of the Israeli border after the implementation of the visa-free regime.
“Each of those who got the refusal had the valid excuse. We know these reasons; we have provided the explanations to your Internal Ministry to show why this particular person was not allowed to our territory. So, if we consider the situation before the implementation of the visa-free regime, then these people will receive the visa to Israel,” he explained.
“If a person cannot report where he is going to live, if he does not have money, if a person causes suspicion, we are not sure that he or she will not work illegally,” Lion added.
Earlier we reported that the Ukrainian labor migrants have sent to Ukraine 600 million euro from the Czech Republic.
Besides, a possible drain of the Ukrainian workers from Poland to Germany might negatively affect the Polish economy, the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers of the Republic informed.
