AAA 5178/09 - State of Israel v. Srur et al. Judgment
Judgment | 5718/09 | 27.4.2011

Judgment on the Ministry of Interior's appeal on the Court for Administrative Affair's acceptance of HaMoked's petition, instructing that permanent residency be granted to the son of a resident of East Jerusalem, for whom a request was submitted after he turned 12. The Ministry's appeal was rejected. The Court rules that the deciding age for receiving permanent residency is the age at the time the request was submitted, and as such the minor is entitled to permanent residency. The judges note that the Ministry of Interior's practice of granting temporary residency for two years to children who have reached the age of 12, denying them permanent residency by claiming the law does not enable status upgrades after the age of 14 - "cannot stand".

The Supreme Court orders the Ministry of Interior to grant permanent residency to the son of an East Jerusalem resident, and rules: the determining age for the purpose of permanent residency, is the applicant's age at the time of the initial application
Following HaMoked’s petition and based on the Supreme Court's judgment in the Srur case: three children of a Jerusalem resident will be granted permanent residency in Israel (02) 627 1698   (02) 627 6317
