I am planning ‘aliyah’ to Israel from the UK. I am divorced. Will the Israeli Ministry of Interior recognize this divorce judgment and register me as divorced ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 07 June, 2022
The UK divorce judgment will be recognized by the Ministry of Interior provided the necessary authorizations are provided. Both the UK and Israel are bound by the Hague Convention of 1961 Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents. The divorce judgment will need an “apostille” stamp which can be obtained from the legalisation office of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London.
