Israel simplifies citizenship process for repatriates from the East

The Israeli registration department of the population has ordered to simplify the citizenship process for repatriates from the Donetsk and Lugansk Oblasts of Ukraine who come under the Law of Return. The order does not apply to Ukrainians from other regions

The new rules have exempted people in Israel who are submitting documents from having them translated into Hebrew and providing a clean criminal record.

According to the Israeli Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, in 2014 the number of repatriates from Ukraine exceeded 5,000, 2.5 times more than last year.

In June, the Israeli government approved a program to help new repatriates from Ukraine, while Jewish organizations and Israeli consulates in Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa accelerated the procedure for processing applications for repatriation.
