Making a Government Account

Over the last few years, Israeli government offices have been working on advancing technologically and becoming more efficient so as to better serve the public. Thanks to this, they have been able to put several important services online, and more online services are constantly being added. 

Online government services help the public reduce long wait times and will save the trips one previously had to take to get errands done. Some of these online services do not require logging in or identification, but some are more sensitive and require an added level of security. For this purpose they created online government accounts which allow citizens to perform sensitive tasks such as:

Activate your Teudat Zehut

Register a newborn’s name

Change of address

Transfer car ownership (Hebrew)

Check if you are restricted from leaving the country

In order to access the full array of online government services, we recommend that you set up a government account. By creating a government account, you will be able to take care of sensitive tasks online, schedule appointments to avoid long wait times, and ensure that you are definitely going to the right place.
