Hinder Polish Jews Going to Palestine

April 13, 1934
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Palestine government is placing new obstacles in the path of Polish Jews in the capitalist category, who desire to emigrate to Palestine.

More than 400 individuals, many of whom have been waiting for months for permits, were ordered to send the 1,000pound, which establishes their right to enter Palestine, to a Palestine bank in advance, instead of depositing the money when they received their visas.

The new regulations will force Jews in the capitalist category to liquidate their business and then wait months before they receive the visas enabling them to go to Palestine.
