Denied entry to Israel?- Get help from Efraim Tankhil


If you are denied entrance into Israel and wish to take legal action to prevent deportation? Or, if you have already returned from Israel and want to find out if you can re-enter Israel? Efraim Tankhil law firm will provide some basic information on denied entry to Israel.

Who might be refused entry into Israel?

A person could be denied entry to Israel due to several reasons;

  1. Criminal record
  2. Security threat
  3. Illegal immigration considerations
  4. The impression that he/she may be a problem for public safety
  5. A hazard to public order
  6. Danger to public health
  7. Work illegally without a work visa, etc.

A foreign citizen applies for any type of visa to enter Israel, but it may deny entry.

It must be noted that citizens of a country must apply for a visa in advance to visit Israel.

What to do if you are refused entry into Israel

If the person who has been refused entry into Israel in the past; wishes to visit Israel in the future, he or she will have to submit an additional request in advance to enter Israel.

  • The entry into Israel’s request will be examined at the time of the visa application.
  • The Israeli Ministry of Interior officers in the border control department have the authority to allow or deny entry to Israel.

The person has to wait for their final decisions or can do legally appeal to the court through a lawyer. 

If the additional request is rejected, the applicant will receive details of the decision rejecting entry to Israel;

The foreign citizen who has been denied entry to Israel will receive a written explanation from the Israeli immigration officer working for the border control administration under the Ministry of Interior’s authority.

Urgent appeal to the Immigration Appeal Court (IAD):

If the person already in Israel, and being held border control or in the detention center,

The immigration officer at the border will hand over the foreign national by Border Control. And eventually, the person has to leave the country or he/ she can consider legal action. 

The person may submit an urgent request against the denial of an entry decision.

Our recommendation is to get to the Efraim Tankhil immigration lawyer for fast and reliable procedures.
