Description

Small blue hardcover booklet, cover labelled “ETAT D’ISRAEL PASSEPORT,” MARKED “41108” near bottom, 32 pages. [page 26-31 blank]

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:Israeli passports were issued after Israel became a state in May 1948, and utilized both French and Hebrew text. However, they were not defined as passports until the end of 1952. Rather, there were referred to as permits or Laissez-Passer, and issued for specific purpose or destination. As can be seen on page four of this passport, these early passports were not valid in Germany unless specifically requested. This changed after the Reparations Agreements with Germany was signed. After 1980, passports were printed in both English and Hebrew.
