Israel simplifies citizenship process for repatriates from the East
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.
