Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law (Temporary Order) 5763-2003 [full and updated version as of April 3, 2014]
Legislation | 3.4.2014
Recent version of the Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law which blocks family unification between Israelis and spouses from the OPT, preventing them from living together in Israel and annexed East Jerusalem. Only from ages 25 for women and 35 for men, is it possible for OPT residents who are married to Israelis to receive a periodic permit to stay in Israel, which does not afford civil status or social security rights. The Law is racist, as it discriminates based on ethnic origin. It also authorises collective punishment by stipulating that applications may be denied if it is claimed that the non-Israeli applicant or anyone from her/his extended family might be considered a security risk.
