You might need an Israeli debit or credit card.
As of July 1, 2019, Misrad Hapnim only accepts payment via Israeli debit or credit card – no cash or checks accepted. Payments have to be made for dapei knisot v’yetziot, passports, teudot zehut, passports and more.
As many community members do not hold Israeli-sourced credit cards, Chaim V’Chessed is currently advocating for change in this matter.
Until a change is made, if you do not have an Israeli debit or credit card of your own and you need to pay for a Misrad Hapnim activity, you can go to the Doar (post office) and purchase a prepaid debit card to use for this purpose.
