    There are two possibilities for verifying a public document:
    1.   Verification by means of apostille
    In 1978, Israel signed and ratified the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents - 1961 (hereinafter: the Hague Convention). The purpose of this Convention was to shorten the processes required for a particular country to recognize the official documents issued by another country, by means of apostille certification.
    Public documents and certificates that were issued in one of the countries that are signatories to the above Convention, and which bear the apostille stamp, are valid for presentation in Israel, without the need for additional verification / certification by the diplomatic / consular representative at the Israeli mission.
    Additionally, for countries that are signatories to the Hague Convention, no additional verification is required by the mission consul of the country for which the document is designated, if it has been stamped with an apostille in Israel.

     Procedure to get married in Italy:

    It is necessary to order from Israel the 'Birth Certificate' and the 'Tamzit Rishum' from the Ministry of Interior (you can order it  through us).

(we can make  a declaration in which is written that the 'Tamzit Rishum is the only document that proves your status). Please send us an official request to have a Nulla Osta to this e-mail:  (consular4@roma.mfa.gov.il )
     Against the decision of the City Hall, you can make a request to the Court, and the judge will decide about your case.
