IMMIGRANT BANKING SYSTEM PROBLEMS
SURVEY FINDINGS DASHBOARD
Immigrants have reported being refused critical banking services like documented money transfers from abroad
Got verbal-only refusals of banking services!
Not allowed to make transfers of personal funds to Israeli accounts from other countries
Did not get a reason for refusals!
Israeli banks were named by respondents, with branches in 47+ cities specified.
The $26,000 that I received from selling a car abroad has been hanging on the bank account for two months because I can't go through compliance.
But I provided absolutely all the documents that the bank requested from me. They are just silent.
We were told that we couldn't transfer our salaries from abroad to our new Israeli bank account.
Of respondents did not get a full resolution to their problem yet!
