The Labor dispute at the Foreign Affairs Ministry of Israel has been ceased. Consular service resumes to normal. Thank you for your consideration.
Due to the failure of the mediation process, as of March 4th, Israeli diplomats around the world have been left with no choice but to resume strict labor sanctions, including the suspension of visa applications and all other consular issues. We look forward to recommencing working contacts after the lifting of the sanctions. Please refer to our weibo for any updates. We take this opportunity to apologize for the inconvenience.
The State of Israel bows its head on the passing of former Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Ariel Sharon will go down in the history of Israel as one of the most noteworthy and influential figures. His memory will be enshrined forever in the heart of the nation.
