A strike by Israeli Foreign Ministry employees has caused a halt to consular services at Israeli embassies and consulates in the United States and around the world.
“Due to a strike of The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, until further notice, NO CONSULAR SERVICES WILL BE PROVIDED,” read a statement posted on the website of the consulate in New York.
Employees at the diplomatic missions will make exceptions for medical emergencies, adoptions and transporting bodies for burial.
Israelis living abroad cannot go to embassies and consulates for issues concerning passports and visas, reports of Israeli births abroad and matters dealing with the Israel Defense Forces.JTA
