IGRA frequently receives requests for information regarding the process to acquire a Birth or Death Certificate in Israel.

Smaller communities may have some records but the official path for obtaining Birth or Death Certificates in Israel is through the Ministry of Interior. The process is not simple and there are specific requirements – and it may not be possible for everyone.

You can now access all the information that it is necessary for you to have before beginning the process.  We have a page in our Israel Resources section of the website where the process is spelled out. Please check out the page to know how to get started.
