The Embassy of Israel is happy to be back in Business. For the past 10 days Israeli Foreign Service officers in Israel and abroad have been on strike due to a labour conflict. During that period all our missions abroad remained closed.
Last night, after lengthy negotiations an agreement has been reached and consequently the Embassy is open again and all our services are back to normal. We do recognize however that due to the strike some backlog may have been created and ask for your understanding while we strive to clear the accumulated tasks.
