Can the Israeli consulate help?
« on: March 10, 2021, 02:59:47 PM »
We have a flight booked from 3-17 to Israel via the UK for my family.
We have good reasons for an exception but are awaiting approval from Israel's committee.
I've been in touch with the Boston consulate via email, they have been very helpful, but it seems after I submitted my official request, they have no more power...it's in the committee's hands...whoever they are.
It's a week before our potential flight.
Should I drive to NYC's (assuming more clout than Boston) embassy and try to push my case?
Does anyone have experience with this?  Can they help if I push my case? Thanks!

Driving to the consulate will accomplish nothing

You can submit a duplicate request to the committee and contact Amudim to push them.

The committee is fairly efficient and if the travel is genuinely justified you will get an answer within 3-4 days at most
