In the 1990s, a large number of immigrants arrived in Haifa, following the mooring of many ships in the city. So in all, about a hundred thousand immigrants from the former Soviet Union settled in the city.
Following the massive wave of aliyah, the need arose to establish a body that would unite all the activities involved in absorbing the large influx of immigrants, and for this purpose the Aliyah Absorption Authority was established in Haifa.
The main purpose of the Immigrant Absorption Authority in Haifa is to coordinate the absorption of immigrants in the city between the various institutions and bodies involved in the absorption of new immigrants.
