ISRAELI CITIZENSHIP

The reasons and arguments for obtaining Israeli citizenship, of course, are quite a lot.

First of all, Israeli citizenship allows you to live in the Holy Land.
The State of Israel is a strong modern country with a stable and developed economy.
Israeli citizenship allows its holders to work in a country of high technologies and start-ups, receive all social benefits relevant to Israeli citizens, receive world-class medical care and freely manage their business without fear of bureaucratic delays.
A warm climate is also important, thanks to which you will maintain your health until old age.
Your children can get an excellent education, since diplomas of Israeli universities are quoted all over the world.
As long as you do not reside in Israel, you are exempt from paying taxes. Only residents are required to pay them.
But most importantly, Israeli citizens have the right to visa-free visits to 147 countries, including such "hard-to-reach" countries as the UK, New Zealand, Canada, and the Schengen countries.

There is no uniform immigration law in the State of Israel, but there are several laws that relate to citizenship and status regulation in Israel, and a large number of instructions from the Ministry of the Interior.

The primary and most common way to obtain Israeli citizenship is through repatriation to Israel under the 1950 Law of Return, which allows every Jew to immigrate to Israel and naturalize in Israel. The law proclaims the State of Israel a Jewish and democratic nation-state designed to serve as a national home for the Jewish people. 
The Citizenship Law of 1952 regulates the question of citizenship in the State of Israel and takes into account a number of cases in which a person can acquire Israeli citizenship.
Thus, according to the Citizenship Law of 1952, anyone born to an Israeli father or an Israeli mother is a natural citizen of Israel. 
According to article 7 of the Citizenship Law, a non-Israeli citizen married to an Israeli citizen may acquire Israeli citizenship by naturalization. 
The unmarried couples, who live together as husband and wife, as well as the foreign spouse of a permanent resident of Israel, are granted the right to obtain the status of a permanent resident of Israel.
Israeli citizenship/permanent residence in Israel by marriage/cohabitation is not automatic. The law provides for a step-by-step legalization procedure, which lasts several years. During the procedure, the Ministry of the Interior checks the honesty of the relationship between the spouses and grants the foreign citizen a temporary status for a period of one year. 
At the end of the process, the law allows the foreign spouse /cohabitant to obtain citizenship in Israel / permanent residence in Israel, depending on the circumstances of the case.

Our firm specializes in obtaining status in Israel and obtaining Israeli citizenship / permanent resident status and provides a personal approach and professional and reliable service to all clients.

CITIZENSHIP OF ROMANIA

As you know, in the first half of the 20th century in Romania there were turning points and dramatic events. Many residents of Great Romania were forced to immigrate or lost their resident status for other reasons.
During World War II, thousands of Jews left Romania in the 20th century as a result of rising anti-Semitism.
Another example, from 1918 to 1940, Greater Romania included the lands of Bessarabia and Bukovina (modern Moldova, Odessa and Chernivtsi regions). After World War II, the kingdom lost some of its territories, and Romanian citizens were resettled throughout the former USSR.

Today, most of the above-mentioned categories of persons are entitled to Romanian citizenship, which provides many advantages since Romania is a member of the European Union.
