Palestine Government Allocates 1,500 Visas for July; None Granted to Jews in Europe

The Palestine Government today allocated the new immigration visas of 1,500 certificates for the month of June 15 – July 14, but the Jewish Agency will not get any this month.

Of the 1,158 certificates which are nominally assigned to the Jewish Agency, 835 will be deducted for the visaless immigrants who arrived on the monitorship Max Nordau and 323 for those who landed from the intercepted schooner, Haviva Reik. One hundred and twenty-two of the Haviva Reik’s passengers will have to wait for the next schedule before they are released from the Athlit camp where they are held as “illegal immigrants.”
