Gay Non-Jews Spouses Can Now Obtain Israeli Citizenship

Written by

Good news in Israel where gay non-Jews spouses now can get the Israeli citizenship.

Indeed, the interior ministry said that "the same-sex spouse of a person eligible for the law of return and who does not live in Israel could also become Israeli."

The Law of Return allows any Jew to obtain an Israeli citizenship if they wish but so far it extended only to heterosexual spouses.

"The doors are open to Israel from now on to any Jews and their family, without discrimination based on their lifestyle," said Minister Gideon Saar.

This law will only apply to same-sex married couples.

But marriages between same-sex people are not recognized by the state of Israel.
