 Learn about the process and importance of obtaining an officially notarized birth certificate translation when applying for permanent power of attorney in Israel.


A marriage certificate holds a special place in the life of a couple, serving as an official confirmation of their marital status. In Israel, the Chief Rabbinate issues marriage certificates for Jewish couples, while spouses from recognized religious communities receive certificates from their respective communities. However, for those seeking to validate their marital status in another country, the translation of a marriage certificate becomes a critical requirement. This notarized translation serves as the official proof of the couple’s union in the eyes of foreign authorities. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the significance of marriage certificate translation and the various scenarios in which it is essential.

The Need for Marriage Certificate Translation

Marriage certificate translation becomes indispensable in several situations:

  1. Immigration: Couples aspiring to immigrate to a foreign country, as well as individual applicants, often need their marriage certificate translated into the language of their destination. This translation is crucial for immigration authorities to recognize the marital status of the applicants.
  2. Work Permits and Visas: Spouses of foreign specialist workers seeking work permits or visas must provide a translated marriage certificate as part of the application process. This certificate serves as evidence of their legal marital status.
  3. Obtaining a European Passport: For couples holding European passports who wish to pass this citizenship on to their children, a translated marriage certificate is required. Additionally, the birth certificates of their children may also need translation.
  4. Prolonged Stay Abroad: Couples planning an extended stay in a foreign country often require a translated marriage certificate to comply with local regulations.

  1. Marriage Certificates Issued Abroad: When spouses marry abroad and receive a marriage certificate in a foreign language with an apostille attached, the certificate must be translated into Hebrew. This is particularly crucial if one of the spouses is a foreign citizen intending to establish legal status in Israel based on the marriage.
  2. Law of Return: To secure an ascendant status under the Law of Return for a spouse, the marriage certificate must be translated into Hebrew. Even in this case, the apostille stamp on the foreign marriage certificate must also be translated.
  3. Social Rights, Insurance, Inheritance, and More: In many foreign countries, couples who are married may be entitled to different rights and benefits compared to unmarried couples. A translated marriage certificate can serve as proof of marital status, ensuring access to these rights.
