Download PDF for this date

The Rumanian Ministry of the Interior has begun accepting applications for exit visas from Rumanian Jews who desire to join member of their families now in Israel, it has been learned here from letters received from Rumania. For the past two years the Rumanian authorities have not even accepted application for exit visas to Israel.

Each applicant for an exit visa has been instructed to appear in person at the Interior Ministry to fill out his application and has been told to detail completely the relationship with members of the family in Israel. Although no visas have been issued as yet it is expected that they will be handed out to persons who can be re-united with their families, as soon as the red tape is out of the way.
