Iranians in Canada Caught Using Fake Israeli Passports

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Canadian authorities have caught seven Iranians using fake Israeli passports at Vancouver International Airport.

The Iranians, whose identity is unknown, were posing as the Solomons family from Rehovot, located south of Tel Aviv. Iranians need a visa to enter Canada, and the travelers may have been trying to take advantage of Israelis’ ability to travel to Canada without a visa.

The passports listed the Iranians’ names and ages as Mona, 48; Tomer, 40; Nadine, 15; Narin, 11; Binyamin, 9; Marin, 6; and Nermin, 5. The passports, however, contained several Hebrew errors and mismatched translations, enabling authorities to recognize them as forgeries. The passports were sent to Israel’s Israeli Population and Immigration Authority.

Several Iranians in recent years have tried to enter various countries with fake Israeli passports.

Foreign Ministry Strike Shuts Down Consular Service at Embassies

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

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.
