“A foreign marriage proposal from a foreigner”
- by admin
A foreigner proposing to marry in Israel could have his or her application rejected if the bride’s parents cannot prove she is at least 18 years old.
The law allows parents of minor children to submit a petition if the minor child is married to a non-Israeli citizen.
If a foreign national, such as a spouse or partner, is married, the law does not apply.
The Israeli government said it was not aware of any case in which a foreigner proposing a marriage to a minor child was denied a permit.
The Foreign Ministry did not respond to questions about the situation in which such a case occurred.
The proposed marriage must be for a valid purpose.
In such cases, a petition must be submitted to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for approval.
If the petition is approved, the couple would have to submit an entry stamp, as required by the law, and pay a fee of 200 shekels ($6).
The IDF will then issue a permit to the applicant, according to the law.
“The court will make a decision on whether to grant a marriage license,” a statement from the ministry said.
“The Israeli courts are based on the principle of equality between the sexes, and the court will give due consideration to the wishes of the parties concerned.”
In recent years, several cases have surfaced involving foreign citizens marrying Israeli citizens.
In 2014, a 16-year-old Israeli woman was granted a visa to marry a man from Poland.
She did not bring her fiancé with her to Israel and had to pay a court fine of 500 shekeles ($8).
In 2013, a young woman from Turkey married a 24-year old Israeli woman and was granted residency permits.
The man from Turkey was granted an Israeli passport and the girl had to file a police report.
The girl, now 19, has been living in Israel for two years.
In 2009, an Israeli man and a woman from China were married in a ceremony at the Al-Azhar University.
The couple had been living together for five years before the marriage.
The man from China was allowed to apply for residency permits for two months.
In 2006, a man and his wife from France were married at the request of a French judge.
The marriage was granted.
In 2012, a woman and her husband from the United Kingdom were married for the first time at a wedding ceremony in London.
The husband is from a different country and was allowed two months to apply.
In 2011, a couple from the Philippines married in an official ceremony in Tokyo.
The couple had previously been married for six months before the wedding, but the couple has been allowed to stay in Israel and file a petition to obtain a residence permit.
