Ministry of Interior, Citizenship and Administrative Code
An individual is entitled to file a petition with a special Administrative Court appealing against a government agency’s decision. The administrative jurisdiction is designed to exercise control over government agencies. The Israeli Administrative Code allows appealing government agencies’ decisions in court, for example:
- Ministry of Interior (MOI) – in the event of denial of passport, visa, permanent residency, petitions for citizenship, cancellation of deportation, family reunification etc.
- Municipal and government agencies
- Agencies overseeing the following areas:
- Registration of Businesses
- Execution of Government Tenders
- Registration and Control over Non-Profit Organizations
- Licensing of Organizations and Accreditation of Specialists (physicians, engineers, psychologists, attorneys, realtors etc.)
- Appealing Outcomes of Government Tenders (wrongfully denied applications, violation of tender procedures, abuse of power etc.)
