Israel offers consular services in Cape Town

“We will be able to identify citizens (for passports, ID documents, etc),” Aviad Hefetz, Consul at the embassy, told Jewish Report.

“Our motivation is to improve the services that we provide. If we can aid Israeli citizens and members of the Jewish community who would otherwise have to travel to Pretoria, then that is what we want to achieve.”

Jewish Report understands that the services will initially be offered on a scheduled basis and not full-time.

Anyone who wants to set an appointment should send an e-mail to consular@pretoria.mfa.gov.il and include their full name (and Israeli ID number if they are Israeli citizens or passport number if non-Israeli citizens).

In the e-mail they should explain what services they require. Unfortunately, telephone appointments will not be accepted.

Jewish Report will continue to give further details of these services as they are made available. The service is active already, though, so take up the offer and e-mail your requirements.

    ‘Hi I’m an American student currently spending a summer at the University of Cape Town.  I’ve noticed a surprising enthusiasm here for the BDS campaign and find it very alarming.  Do you have any recommendations on countering this movement? Thanks, any suggestions would be helpful, I’ve found BDS to be highly aggressive and inflammatory in its slogans towards Israel.’

    ‘Hi

    I am planning to visit Israel; however, I have a criminal record (was convicted 17 years ago for a minor offence).  Would it be a problem entering Israel with a criminal record?

    ‘Do you know where the consulate is in Cape Town?  And perhaps a telephone number to arrange an appointment?’
