Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law (Temporary Order), 5763 – 2003
Legislation | 6.8.2003
A temporary order pursuant to which Israelis married to, or who marry in the future, Palestinians from the Occupied Territories are not permitted to submit requests for family unification on their behalf, and thus prevents the couple to live together inside Israel. Israelis married to foreigners who are not Palestinians from the Occupied Territories may submit requests for family unification on their behalf, as in the past. Thus, the law discriminates on the basis of ethnic or national origin. Children over 12 who are born in the Occupied Territories, where one of the parents is a resident of East Jerusalem and the other a resident of the Occupied Territories, are not allowed to live with their family in Jerusalem. The Interior Ministry changed these procedures for registering these children in the population registry, and now a request for family unification must also be submitted for them, an action that the temporary order prohibits.
