When an oleh marries an olah who has used tax-free privileges within the last six years, their shipments are added together, with the permitted total remaining at three. The oleh can only bring in goods that his spouse did not. It is no longer the case that if your spouse used her rights over six years ago and spent the next six years in Israel, you have a complete set of rights. There still may be some leniency in this matter -- check with us first. If a shipment is arriving near your marriage date and you have a problem with overlapping purchases or too many shipments, your shipment must be cleared through Customs before you are married. A returning resident who marries an olah forms an oleh family with the full tax and customs rights.
